Learning my ABCs

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14
Learning my ABCs
Lauren, my two year old, is teaching me my ABCs
To Analyze every anthill, for they are always so busy but never seem stressed
To Bounce with each step because the journey is more important than the destination
To Cuddle for no reason and bless others spontaneously
To Dance in the silence to the songs of a joyful mind
To Expect fun around every corner, even at the grocery store
To Forget the pain of a fall in seconds
To Get back on whatever you fell from until you get it right
To Hop on every step and delight in the smallest accomplishments.
To Include each new person on your list of friends and opportunities
To Jump to your Father trusting in His arms
To Kiss with a loud noise so they know you really mean it.
To Love every animal, even bugs and snakes.
To Make the most of the moment by creating your own bliss
To Need others’ help and not be afraid to ask
To Offer comfort when you hear a cry for you know what that is like
To Play a new game with every mundane task with just a spoonful of sugar
To Quiet down for rest to get the energy to be loud again
To Run without feeling silly, in fact you hope that people look
To Sing as loud as possible especially original songs
To Think aloud for your thoughts are still pure and innocent
To Understand the people you stand under.
To Vacation in your home because that’s where you can be yourself
To Wear snow boots with sundresses just because you can
To eXperiment with everything, and try just to find out
To Yearn for a new toy and put it back on the shelf
To Zoom into rooms, sound effects and all.
