Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time with a friend's son. I didn't expect the hang-time, and it started when I said: "Oh, by the way I was thinking about you when I made this over Thanksgiving...." This boy looked at my project with TOTAL interest.
talked ideas for embellishments. Ideas
for improving it next time. Ideas for
how we might make something together in the future.
Then he told me about some of his interests. We went and looked at videos of his
interests. We had a great interchange
over interesting things on how he might make projects out of his
We had that 'a-ha' moment
when we realized we had some pretty similar interests and that we might have
the basis for a friendship. Sometimes
children can show you how easy it is to build a new friendship out of an acquaintance. I am grateful for that young fella. :)
