There is nothing like the honest goodwill and kindness of a child. Without guile, agenda or motives a pure act of kindness: a picked flower, a beautiful rock, a hug from a young one, can change a bad mood into a good one. 6/cups is about kindness, experiencing joy, innocent pleasures acts of giving, and childhood.
It is true that the act of giving feels great and when we do something to lift someone's spirits we also feel happy, too. It can be as small as paying for someone's coffee down the line, filling the parking meter with an extra quarter; small acts of generous grace uplift everyone, especially the giver.
This card is also about children and childhood so spending time with a young loved one helps remind us of the wee little one we once were. Play and imagination are needed throughout our lives and if we need a boost a child will show the way.

Beautiful. The Shadowscapes Tarot is so perfect for this card. I always think of it, and all you have said, whenever a child or a baby bestows an unwarranted beaming smile on me for no reason and without knowing me in the slightest. It's the sheer gift of giving and generously given no matter whether we deserve it or not, and asks for nothing in return nor given to them in the first place.
