Tonight I made pancakes for supper.Sometimes we like to have breakfast for supper. When I was done making the pancakes I tapped my big metal spoon against the top of the metal bowl,still half full of pancake mix,it made a loud noise.Ruby, who was sitting nearby in the entrance to the kitchen,looked up at me and clearly said,"What's that?" She amazes me sometimes with how much she understands and how much she is just like any 4 year old child.
I was so excited just a couple of weeks ago when I saw that she had colored all over the side of my refrigerator and she left her "Artwork" on my living room wall and down the hallway wall.I was excited because I remembered her oldest brother doing a similar thing at four years old,he colored all over the wall in my hallway.
When I saw Ruby's 'artwork' for a brief second I felt a little irritated,then I started laughing and smiling because I realized she did what many other four year old children do.
I'm so thankful the Lord gave her to me.She makes me appreciate the small things,she gives me patience.
