Running 

I watched you cry today.
Your little feet were carrying you as fast as they could, when, 

BAM!  

Forehead, meet wall.

The waterworks came with a loud scream.

Mommy was back on duty, and sister-recreation time was over…

Or so I thought.

Less than a minute later, you’re back to

Running.  

With tears in your eyes 

But a smile on your face, 

We resumed the game as if nothing had ever happened.

But when we took a break, 

The sniffles returned, and you crawled into my lap, looking for security.  

A few moments of R&R…

And we’re back!

To running

  1. Thank you for sharing this piece! It reminds me of something that happened today in my home as well. I babysit a dear 2 and a half year old little girl, and today we were listening to music and dancing around the living room when she tripped and landed on the carpet and the tears started to fall. I scooped her up and comforted her, but it was less than a minute and she was smiling and dancing again even though the tears still glistened. Children are amazing like that. 🙂

    1. Awww, you’re welcome!
      Ohh yes! 😥❤😊 Little kids are so resilient! I’m so glad God made them that way… Many less would survive childhood without His perfect design! 😬😊
