Funny, what children deem important, huh? Chris’ birthday is coming up and Phoenie spent a long time making a card for his Papak. Interesting to note that of all the experiences that our six-year-old grandson has shared with Chris, Phoenie thought it appropriate to draw a picture of Chris and I fast asleep in the early morning, with Phoenie bouncing into our room, telling us to “Get up.” I wonder what was going on in his little mind when he sat down to create this little masterpiece.
I just love the way that children see the world. The inside of the birthday card was also amusing… a little bit of Easter mixed up with birthday celebrations! Apparently, “tonight… family!!!!” means something very special to him. In case, you don’t recognize the big-eared figure on the far left, that’s the Easter Bunny sneaking into Phoenie’s room while he’s catching a few “Zs”, and it’s nice to know that Phoenie is so happy!
This is great to behold – life filtered through a child’s imagination. It does the heart good.
