Wonder and Joy

Sukey LiveI was giving an interactive class for parents and children and discovered a tender moment of childhood. We just finished singing and dancing with scarves and needed a moment to transition, so I invited everyone to lie down and enjoy just being there before going on to the next thing.

I noticed one little girl, lying on her tummy, head to the side, and scarves in hand, humming to herself in a state of relaxed bliss. She had no need to rush, and was thoroughly enjoying the sense of wonder and joy at being in a young new body!

When it came time to give back the scarves, she was quite ready to do so, and I was reminded how important it is to create extra time and space when children are transitioning from one thing to another!
