My younger sister and I run a hair salon.
The members of our Zion (WMSCOG) often come to our hair salon. Among them, Seung-min who is in elementary school is one of our regular customers. There is a hair salon near his house, but he always asks his mom to take him to our shop.
One day, my younger sister cut his hair. However, while trying to make his hair the same length, she cut his hair too short. She was very worried that he might be hurt. I asked Seung-min’s mom if he was okay, and she told me that he was okay.
The next day, his mom came to our shop and told us what Seung-min had told her.
At school his friends made fun of him, saying that he looked like a bald comedian. Then he imitated the comedian and made his friends laugh. So his mother said to Seung-min, “Really? Good job! Well, actually our sisters at the hair salon asked me if you were okay because your hair was cut too short.”
“So what did you tell them?” asked him.
“Well, I told them not to worry because you like whatever hairstyle they make for you.”
“Cool! Way to go!”
When I heard what Seung-min had told her, I was amazed at his broad mind and gentleness. He was not concerned about how his friends made fun of him, but rather he was worried about us. I don’t think I have been considerate of others. Rather, I always thought about how I felt, and I often grumbled against the brothers and sisters. Although Brother is young, he considers how others feel more than how he feels. I learn through him how we can become like angels who our Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother (God the Mother) want us to be.
