Time after time she brings me some "treasure" (rarely as pretty as this one). Excitedly, she calls out "Look, Mom, I found!" with the same enthusiasm whether it be a beautiful flower or a piece of bark from the playground mulch that looks just like the thousands of other pieces all around her. Sunday's lesson on The Creation made me think of my Amelia and the joy she loves to share in this beautiful home we've been given on Earth.
Elizabeth, on the other hand, has never been one to run and show me a pebble or a blade of grass. I think she's a little too busy doing the creating.
