The other day my little monkey surprised me. She sees me at the computer a lot. Research, homework helps, Googling anything I need or finding info on my latest project. She has taken to playing with the keyboard and pretending to “work” but the other day she wanted so badly to truly help me.
Girl 2 :”Mama, what’s your theme this week?”
Me: *distractedly making dinner* “Hmm?”
Girl 2 – *heavy sigh* “You know, your bus theme Mom. What are you going to teach? I want to look up your scriptures!”
(Insert pretty pleases and adorable smiles)
Me: *finally paying attention *….”You what?”
Girl 2: *getting impatient* “Mom! You know! What do you want me to look up for your bus lesson this week?”
Me:*crying/cheering a little inside* “Forgiveness honey, look up fogiveness.”
Aaagh! When did this happen? How did this being come to exist? She has followed my every move and knew my routine as if I had written her a schedule. Oh my, mamas! I almost missed the beauty of this moment! My baby doing a Bible search. For me. Wow!
How this girl copies me. How she loves that her mama is a teacher and planner. God help me to see these moments more clearly and to savor them. My dear sweet child, pray for your mama to be a good pattern for you to follow.
