Phoebe, currently being ignored by her mother who was catching up on the blogging world was playing happily on her mat... then she started complaining and her mother, being a bit engrossed in what she was doing tried to entertain but the child was not fooled, mother was not giving her her full attention. The complaining continued... then Daddy came in, took compassion on his little girl and crawled down on the floor and lay next to his child laughing and making silly noises till Phoebe started laughing and playing again. Mother stopped what she was doing and watched her two favourite people in the world blow raspberries on their play mat.
I think God has been trying to remind me of this for a while, but today i really get it.
