Enjoying the company of two of my grandsons is such a joy! As I cleaned the chartreuse dust off of my patio that the grand oaks dropped on it, I watched as they played together in the yard. It reminded me of when I was a little girl, pretending to be a different character than I was. Being the boys that they are, they fought off the vicious bear and deer! It makes me thankful that I was insistent that my children play outside, and now they are encouraging their kids to do the same thing. You don’t hear about children enjoying the outdoors, just complaining that they spend too much time on their games, but if they had something else to do and weren’t so bored, they might play pretend a little more. Children need you to be available and not so wrapped up in your own life drama or technology that you miss seeing them interact with other children. Spend some time in the real world today!
Hear, my son, your father's instruction, and forsake not your mother's teaching, for they are a graceful garland for your head and pendants for your neck. Proverbs 1:8-9
