Listening

Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don't listen earnestly to the little stuff when they are little, they won't tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them it has always been big stuff. - Catherine Wallace

Today my children and I talked about what makes the perfect bubble, why you can't go into the Bakerton dam, why sticking your feet in the creek is not an acceptable shower, hide and seek, flowers, cartwheels, and avoiding cat attacks. That is a good day. And someday when they need to talk about girls or boys, big faith questions, hurting hearts, happy surprises, and life's joys and sorrows, I pray that we talk then to. But for now, a conversation on how the high grass tickles our feet is good for me.
