100 times a day, Eldon says, “mommy come see!”

Eldon notices things. He notices the hummingbirds and the butterflies and the cicada shells. He notices the cloud that looks like an alligator.  He notices the single red leaf in our yard, and he notices that there’s a little bit of orange in it too.   He’s the one who hears me when I thank God for the sunshine. How do I know? Because the next day, he points it out to me, with loud joy, and his wild hand gestures and running feet sing praise God in his little way.

He makes sure I notice, too, as if it’s a task he’s been given by God Himself.
 “Mommy, Wookit!” (Look at it!)
“Mommy, come SEE this!”

Though I don’t always appreciate it—the interruption of my “work” to “lookit”—I see that he blesses me in this way. He is part of the answer to my prayer, when I pray, God, help me to see.

Do you need help slowing down? Do you long to see?
