When I first looked at today’s Daily Prompt, I wasn’t sure if I could come up with anything to write. I actually looked up the definition so I could really think about what that word means and try to relate it to something in my own life. Then I realized, I get to see it all the time at work!
I currently work at a daycare… in the nursery. My days are filled with caring for little ones from as young as twelve weeks up to a little over a year old. They are AMAZING little creatures and I love them so much! (So much so…I’m currently filling in, doing the morning shift, which is WAY more hours than I’m used to…lol.)
Anyhow, one of the definitions included the idea of trembling with “excitement,” and that’s the one that caught my eye because it’s the one I get to see when one of our little ones takes his/her first step. You can literally see the anxiety, the wonder, and then the relief when that first step is a success.
We also get to see it when we walk in the door and they are just as happy to see us as we are to see them. There really is no better feeling in the world than having little babies love you with all they’ve got and it doesn’t matter if the babies are yours or not!!!
It is a wonderful sense of trembling and I am so blessed to get to see it!!!
Okay, that’s it for tonight. I have to get up early and go hang out with the wee ones again. 🙂
So here I am again…trying one more time to get my thoughts into words. I still don’t know what exactly I want to do with this blog but I have to get started (again) or just delete it and move on to something else.
Today’s Daily Prompt is Lovingly. I can work with this. I do try to approach everything in a lovingly way. For example, Facebook must be approached with love and grace. If not, I would probably reprimand many of my friends and family for what they post. Then, of course, I remember that we all live different lives and come at things with different perspectives. Plus, I don’t have the time to defend my perspective and opinion all day. I have a life to live too.
The babies I take care of at work are another great example. Each one needs love and nurturing from me every time they’re in my care. This one is pretty easy because they are awesome kids and I love watching them grow and learn! The opportunity to be a part of that just fills my heart with so much joy – unlike some of the political posts I have to scroll through.
One thing I need to work on is how I react to my own flaws and short-comings. I need to treat myself in a lovingly way. I have some bad habits I need to work on and some baggage to drop (dropping a few pounds wouldn’t hurt either). 😉
I’m working on it and fortunately, I am surrounded by family and friends to help me along the way!
Okay, I did it! I wrote something! Yay me!
I’ll try this again tomorrow but no promises…lol.
