I have heard it said that if you allow a child to draw anything they wish the result will give you a view into their world. If that is true, then I am a very proud and happy Mommy today. Princess Imagination chose to draw a picture of her heart the other day, and what’s inside her heart had me tearing up.
And then, it had me writing poetry… about what the world could learn about priorities from my little girl.
Room In My Heart
The survey asks me to define,
to give a number,
to apportion value twixt the things the world tells me to love.
What is most important to you?
The question assumes a spot for each.
The only variant
is how much space I give each “what”
in the landscape of my heart.
But when my daughter draws her heart,
there is no room for “what,”
there is only room
is big enough for God,
and people in need,
