My morning started with a miniature explosion of cuteness. I opened my backdoor this morning to feed the not so strays and was greeting with the sounds of kittens under my porch. Loud, very loud, kittens under my feet. Our official cat kept staring at the floor with a very confused expression.
I went ahead and fed the not so strays but I did not try to see the kittens. I’m hoping they are the ones that were above my room and that she’s moved them to the location under the porch. If so, I don’t want to give her reason to think she needs to move them again.
I just got home from helping with Vacation Bible School. We had thirteen kids in our class today. The attendance may be different tomorrow, more or less, I’ve heard in the past that it always seems to vary. It was so much fun today. It was as much a learning process for me as it was some of the kids.
Meeting in front of the church, going inside for the welcoming message and then to the classroom. A lesson, a few activities and then to music. The kids were learning the first song and dancing. Yes, I made attempts. The first attempts I’ve made at any sort of dancing in years. From there to snacks, to missions and then crafts. Three hours of learning, laughing and living. At the end we met back in the sanctuary and enjoyed a few more moments as the entire group. All doing the song learned earlier.
It was amazing watching how well everyone had their parts and responsibilities down. It wasn’t a perfect day technology wise, but I’m sure the kids barely noticed that part. Young minds running at warp speed from topic to topic, adventure to adventure. Some things aren’t worthy of space on their mental radar.
Today though, now that I have time to take a breath and think, today was one of the few times that I have participated in something and felt a part, felt that I belonged. There was no, am I good enough, no, am I smart enough, no, anything. Today was a day where I was a part from the gathering of the group going in, to watching parents pick them up to go home. I’m really looking forward to tomorrow.
