One of the Best Parts
Working with TCKs has some definite perks. I work with some of the most amazing kids on the planet. I get to travel to different places around the world. I meet incredible people who live faithful and sometimes radical lives. I get to train people who choose to live counter-cultural lives. I partner with many who give sacrificially and pray without ceasing.
Once in a while all those things come together in one moment. I had one of those moments Friday afternoon as I was saying good-bye to 4 year old A. Our conversation went something like this . . .
A: Thank you for a fun week.
Me: Thank you, A! I’m glad you had fun.
A: I did.
Me: I want you to remember that I love you a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot, and a lot!
A: You love me more than you could say in one day?
Me: I love you more than I could say in one year.
And for that I was rewarded with a little squeal and a great big hug.
Moments like that help me get out of bed some mornings. They’re definitely one of the best parts.
