Abundance: Week 3, day 2

Me, to the 3-year-old, as I toss some things in a box: “We are going to get rid of some of your toys, before you get new stuff for Christmas.”

The kid: “And we’ll give it to some other children?”
me: “Exactly! Who taught you about that, somebody at church?”
Kid: “No, you did!”

The joy for the day: that sometimes they listen. That sometimes, the good stuff sinks in. That “home” and “church” are not utterly separate places. And that we have more than enough to share.
