It amazes me really how little they actually need. If I just give them my solid attention for a few minutes sprinkled throughout the day they are happy and content. Cuddle time on the couch. Prayers and squeezes before bed. Little words of affirmation...like I love you, I'm so proud of you, You're just the cutest thing. It never really changes does it? As we get older we still long for that attention. Need those words of encouragement. Want to feel attended to and taken care of. If only for a minute.
As little chick turned back to blow me a kiss this morning she said you're the best. My heart swelled. She made me feel special. It's what she does. Her teachers even say that at school she's constantly telling them they're the best. I love that words of encouragement pour out of her little spirit. I love that as I pour into her life, she's pouring into others. That's what it's about. That's why we're here. THAT'S what we were born to do:) It's coming full circle.
Have a blessed day.
