Like I said in my last post, I’m still on winter break and working at a day care. This is my last week working because I’m headed back to Birmingham this weekend to start my spring semester!
But until then, the day care adventures continue.
I love working with children. I’m not sure if I said that in the last post, but I do. I love babysitting, I love doing child care at church, and I’ve loved working at this day care. But as much as I like it, it’s hard looking after several kids. I mean, God only gave me two eyes. And when there’s six or seven kids playing around the room or on the playground, it’s easy to lose track of what one or two kids is doing while you’re watching to make sure all of the other kids are doing okay. And if the kids you aren’t looking at get in a fight or fall down and scrape their hands, it’s hard to know what happened because you didn’t see it happen.
In childcare, and in life, it’s important that we keep our eyes open, always watching what is happening around us, even when it’s hard to do so because there are so many things going on at once.
Keep your eyes open as you go throughout today and in the future. There are important things going on and people needing help. But to help and to notice these happenings, you have to pay attention. So make a resolution to watch out, pay attention and then do what needs to be done.
