The Ordinary and Everyday

That? That? That?

Truck . . . car . . . bus . . . tree . . . plane . . . The list goes on.

Pelted by these questions daily driving down the road, I sigh, then whisper, then thank God for a toddler whose mind is growing and learning about his world.

Mind you, his questions are not quiet – definitely not an inside voice. My head reverberates with his excitement. These are the same trees, the same MANY buses seen on our way to drop the big girls off, and the same multitude of cars on the highway. Yet we answer again, and again, and again.

How often do I let the everyday rob me of the excitement of learning something new? How often does the ordinary cloud my perspective of a new day?

Thank God for toddlers.
