i know grace and mercy have a lot to do with the wonder and safety that is preschool. i know that we prepare spaces for children to explore in. i know we can often sit back and watch them take those spaces over. today i recognized how much there is to be grateful for. two little boys found themselves in the middle of the fairly busy street that runs next to our playground. thankfully one of the boys’ moms was driving by. thankfully the oncoming truck stopped.
when i realized what had happened, talked with the mama, i made a plan. i could promise that what happened today would never happen again. i know where to stand. i know where to make sure the kids are.
i am grateful it didn’t take tragedy to remember how easily accidents happen. and how often grace and mercy do too.
