I brought a stump inside for the children at my Nest. I didn't have a real purpose in mind, but I thought perhaps they would use it to *cook* on or use with the assorted animals.
Instead, they had other plans.
It became a canvas for colored chalk.
I was taken by surprise when I first saw it and gasped inwardly. But what's the big deal! It's only chalk. And the stump IS for the children.
It reminds us all to *look to the Children. . they know what to do*.
We just need to be there to provide the environment, love them, and keep them free from harm.
