I am joining with Gypsy Momma today...
I watched several preschool programs this week. That is my blessing being a preschool director. Children singing to their mommies and daddies. Oversized hand motions with big smiles. So proud of what they had learned and so proud to have someone they loved watching them.
One boy yells "That is my Nanny!"
A little girls eyes light up when she sees her daddy.
A shy child holds her hand over her mouth but is secretly glad that she is performing for momma.
After the performance the children have opportunity to create a holiday treasure with their someone special. The adults have come into the child's envorment. It is our chance to be a child again and enjoy the simplicity of popcicle sticks, pom-poms, glue and glitter.
Yet, some of these adults cannot or will not connect. They are still plugged into their cell phones texting while their child creates. They sigh and look at their watch. They ask me "How long do I have to stay?"
I wonder how often do I do that. Do I linger too long at the computer? Do I acknowledge their question? Do I hear their voices? Or am I too caught up in things that really don't matter to connect? Pinterest, blogging and facebook can wait.
Help me Lord to hear and see so I can connect with people and with You.
