I was so touched last week when I discovered this letter our nine year old daughter made for her younger brother while he was sick. I thought it was so sweet she included a Bible verse.
A few days later we were putting together our Operation Christmas Child Boxes. The children were making pictures to put in the box. Whenever they ask me what they should draw when they are sending pictures to someone I always say, "Draw something that would make you smile if you received it in the mail." In my mind that is pictures of rainbows, sunshine, flowers, trees, sailboats, Christmas Trees..
Here is what our 7 yo ds drew...
A Great White Shark who is about to eat a crab..
It makes him smile. To him vicious sharks =rainbows .
Parenting. One minute you are raising Pollyanna and the next you are raising the next Crocodile Hunter.
Best. Job. Ever.
