Through a Child's Eyes
This afternoon Emily and Ella came to visit, and we spent time outside in the beautiful fall sunshine.
When Emily was a toddler, she called the chrysanthemums "mummas"--we still laugh about that! Ella enjoyed smelling and touching all the mums, and seems to like the bright yellow the best. Then Emily and Ella twirled around in the fresh breeze, and watched the leaves and maple seeds fall to the ground.
Ella is almost 16 months old. She's a whiz kid, soaking up new words and activities like a thirsty little sponge. Today she sang entire verses of some of her favorite Jesus songs--yes, I'm braggin'! I'm so amazed at her language development and her fine and gross motor skills. What a blessing it is that her parents read to her and sing and pray with her each day.
What a peaceful and fun time it is when we see the world through Ella's eyes. Thank You, Lord!
