At 5:50 in the morning it’s still pretty dark here. This morning was no different. I was rushing (shocker) because I chose to watch TV last night instead of making lunches for the kids. As I was gathering sandwiches and water bottles my son said “Hey Mom you should look outside. You can see all the stars in the sky and they’re blue. They look really nice.”
Immediate pause. Deep breath. Wow. Insert Oprah Aha moment. I love the fact that something in this wonderful life made him stop and pause for a moment. I love that he appreciated the beauty of the stars this morning when many of us adults just take for granted that they’re twinkling in the sky. Most importantly I love the fact that he wanted to share something so beautiful with me.
Children notice way more than we think they do. They sit in the background and breathe it all in. They make us giggle. Sometimes they make us cry. And sometimes if you’re lucky they give you the gift of gazing at the stars.
