"Miss Kristi?! Miss Kristi where are you?" four-year-old Brianna called.
"I'm down here" I replied
I heard her little feet running towards my office
"Miss Kristi, I picked these for you!"
In her hands Brianna held a bouquet of dandelions.
"They are beautiful" I told her.
"I'm going to go play now" she said as she ran away.
Dandelions are funny things. Weeds to most, but to Brianna they are a beautiful flower, and to me they brightened my day. :)
I went to the basement to get a Styrofoam cup and water to put the dandelions in. Later in the day when I was eating lunch in my office Brianna returned.
"Miss Kristi what are you eating?"
"Turkey sandwich, and apples" I replied
"Oooohhh! I had waffles for lunch" she said
Then Brianna noticed the dandelions in the Styrofoam cup on my desk
"You kept them?!" she exclaimed.
"Yes, of course they are pretty"
"I'm glad you like them, dad does not, he says they are weeds, but if you like them I will pick you some more tomorrow!"
I guess this means I will have fresh floral arrangements for the next few days until VBS decorating is over. Needless to say the perks of my "job" are many and each day I see God working through those around me. The affirmation each day in the little things that I see around me, make me realize more and more that I am right where God wants me to be. :)
