We’ve got a house full of new toys Wyokiddo received for Christmas. But for almost two hours tonight, she entertained herself with a box, straws, tape, beads, feathers and pipe cleaners. Lots and lots of pipe cleaners.
She was creating an “invention.” I’m not clear on what the invention will do once it is finished. I don’t know that she cares. Wyokiddo was all about the process, attacking the placement of each hole, each bit of straw, with a great deal of concentration and seriousness.
Wyokiddo is too young for New Year’s Resolutions. But I think I’ll take my cue from her and work to find joy and purpose in the little things that surround me.
