Life is a bit rough for this little one right now. She's not sure quite where she fits at school. Recess namely. We've had reports of tears at lunchtime 2 days in a row. And tears for her mean tears for me too. This morning her prayer request was for school to be only 5 minutes. She doesn't know exactly what 5 minutes is, but she knows its short. Tonight as I tucked her in she told be through choked back tears that she wished she could just stay in her classroom all day. Part of me wants to be there the second she walks down the stairs and sit with her all though lunch, then play jump rope or tag til recess is over and walk her back to her perfect little kindergarten room. She wouldn't shed a tear if I did that. But the other part of me knows that difficulties in life produce strength. Its a delicate balance here. Comfort from being close or growth from letting go. Growing sure hurts.
