Little Hands Creating
He took his time as his hands moved the needle and thread back and forth through the felt. There were moments of pause, and then back to work. He worked slowly, but mindfully, focused on completing his handwork. Christmas music played in the background, and there was chatter as he worked side by side with his friend. I sat quietly, needles in my hand, knitting. I helped changed thread, but mostly just sat, watching and listening.
It is in moments like this, when we sit together creating, that my heart sings. Watching his little hands work, listening to the things he talks about, and just being together, sharing moments of creativity.
Being creative, crafting, making art, these are things we do every day, but there is something about this time of year, with the busy of the world around us, that calls us to connect a little deeper to our creative side. So we do, with festive crafts and handwork. And as we move through the season our home fills up with the goodness of creations by the littlest hands in our home.
