Polka dots: in life the special occasions, main events, everyday happenings. Stripes: the lines of routine occurrences, schedules kept, consistant love shown to others. The lines connect the dots...the shape of life!
Yesterday while rubbing lotion on her red chapped hands, our little one said with a dejected tone in her voice, "My skin is all worn out." Her 4 year old skin ALL worn out!!! Of course, I laughed inside as I rubbed her hands, and contemplated what she had said. She'd been busy living! ... "let me do it now! Let me not defer it or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
Have a full and happy day!
P.S. Have your children or grandchildren or any child for that matter, said something that made you laugh? I'd love to hear it. There's nothing cuter that an innocent voice speaking their perspective.
