I am sitting at the kitchen table, eating breakfast with my four-year-old. The rest of the house is quiet; the older two still asleep, husband at work in the basement. She is quiet, too, as she digs into her warm bowl of oatmeal. She-who-will-not-be-hurried is deeply focused.
She pulls up a spoonful and holds it over her bowl, watching.
Finally….finally….she looks at me and explains, “I’m watching the steam. Steam is beautiful.”
Steam is beautiful.
There you are, friends. Your mindful moment for the day, brought to you by a preschooler. Steam is beautiful.
Go out and find something else beautiful in your day.
“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge.”–Psalm 19:1-2
