Paying Attention

It's easy to overlook the little works by children but I do try to take a good look at their efforts to put together colors and design that turn into rich fantasy. It comes so naturally to all children. They can see a story everywhere. A parent taking notice is life giving to a child, to anyone in need of a smile or recognition. A child's life of pretend is a marvel. They certainly do pay attention. Take note. Barbara Brown Taylor says she would like to apprentice herself to a child. Yes!

"To apprentice oneself to a child is to learn that the world is full of wonders, a world in which nothing is simply what it seems because everything is packed with endless possibilities of usefulness and meaning." The Preaching Life

What do you see in a child's life when you pay attention?
