When I arrived for the afternoon, little Lawson proudly showed me the creation made from the “shaper paper” that I had brought for them last week. I don’t generally have a great deal of faith in the advertisement of new and improved art products, but this one did end up making for a rather impressive little octahedron. Better by far, however, was getting to look into his lovely blue eyes and listen as he told me about his day’s events. Sometimes little ones can just about break your heart . . . and it is moments like these when I am reminded of all that is good and true–and when I realize when I am reminded of what a great, and humbling, privilege it is to get to invest in these young lives.
