A wise man said that G'd is present when children play.
I most recently worked in a daycare. The kids finally accepted me and felt relaxed in my presence. Relaxed enough to play with me. My heart swelled. Their innocence touched me. They were full of imagination. One girl dressed up as a baker and fed me cookies. One took over the telephone and held conversations with me. Two gave me doll babies to care for. It was so much fun. No teaching. No molding them into well behaved, obedient children. Just children being themselves, trusting me, and playing with me.
I think what this wise man said is true. The freedom I saw in these kids was joyful. That happiness and joy has to be part of what truly being alive is about. What G'd is about!
Writing and art are my passions!
