What Art Reveals

img_64671This morning, as I was engaged in one of my most prolific pastimes–laundry–Oscar sat at the table where I was folding. creating his latest masterpiece.  When I asked him what he was drawing today, he said, “I am drawing something for Santa Claus.”  When I inquired further, thinking perhaps I would get a glimpse into what he might be wishing for for Christmas, he said, “This is the earth.  And this is me.  I’m making my arm long enough so I can hug the world.” 

Once again I am humbled by the wisdom of my child. 

And once again I am inspired by the sentiments of a four-year-old. 

As the holidays approach, my wish is that we can all reach beyond our own needs and wants and “hug the world.” 

The world needs it . . . and so do we.

  1. Your boys are so beautiful, inside and out. They must get that from their Auntie Christina…I guess their parents do a good job raising them, too! Sending hugs to all of you…and the world!

I would love to hear your thoughts . . .
