A Gift From a Child

Day 20 of my 30-day challenge

Day 20 of My 30-Day Challenge

Several of the children in my life—including most of my grandchildren—all attend a summer school program that has lots of structured activities throughout the week including exercise, crafts, computer projects, board games, etc.  This week, one of their projects was yarn-and-popsicle-stick craft called God’s Eye.

The day after they had created their masterpieces, Steve and I dropped in on some of the grands for a quick visit.  They were still bubbling with excitement about their most-recent artistic expressions.  Willow, the oldest of the four, led me to her room and showed me her God’s Eye hanging over her bed.  Here’s a picture of it:

Very well done, if I may say so myself!

As I turned to leave the room, six-year-old Bear (you’ve read about him before), met me with his hands behind his back and pleased expression on his face.  He produced a wad of yarn with a couple of  sticks poking out of it (see picture below) and said, “I made this for you, DD.”  Then, as an afterthought, “I messed up a little.”

    SO funny! I feel like Bear when presenting a gift I’ve wrapped myself… “I messed up a little”.

      I know what you mean, Mindi. Though I think it and may not say it, I always feel that way when I present my gift in its Walmart sack.
