Recently Overheard


Lily, standing on her tiptoes on a chair she has pulled next to the plate shelf, in a barely audible whisper: This is very beautiful.  I cannot destroy it.

The voice of a child's conscience, I suppose.

As I watched silently, she rearranged the plate shelf to hold the things she deemed the most special and after thanking her I did remind her that we really shouldn't be pulling chairs up to high out of reach treasures.

But really, I was quite impressed. Perhaps there is hope for the nice things in our home, afterall.

I can very much hear her little voice in my head saying those words. What a thoughtfully mischievous little one!
