THE NEW GIG
Today I laid on the floor and made animal noises with the most adorable blond headed little boy. He giggled when I did my "pig" impression. (It's time to trade in my dry-clean only suits for something a little more comfortable and easy to wash!) I held a teary eyed little girl until the train looked more fun than crying. I sang songs I had forgotten, pretended to "eat" several items that were "fed" to me by adorable little people, and was able to also share a graham cracker during snack time. I listened to little tiny voices offer prayers and watched small children fold their arms, bow their heads and close their eyes to talk to God, and yes, they know him.
It's been said that if the Savior showed up at church, he would immediately go to the classes where the children are. I know that to be true. He loves the little children. I am so excited to get to spend time with people that are so sweet, kind and pure. They love without question and are happy with little things, like singing "Once there was a snowman" and eating fruit snacks. These are some of the things I have forgotten.
I am so grateful for not getting to "choose" where I want to serve. By sometimes getting pulled out of our comfort zones, we grow. And isn't that why were are here on this journey? To grow...... one random woman at a time.
