This morning was a little bit different in the Studio. Beccy, our communications team leader had a bit of a poorly three year old who had to join her mum for a little bit while she sorted her team for the week. After about ten minutes of shyness, I managed to persuade Megan to come to life with my desperate final offering…some post-it notes. Suddenly, I wasn’t so scary after all:
After a little bit of drawing and the failsafe that is ‘Cbeebies’, Megan had decided I was allowed to be her friend. I love the shameless, untamed emotions of toddlers. Everything is either a fun game or the end of the world and very rarely in between. It’s so much fun for me! I could honestly say that, had I not learnt to play an instrument, I would probably spend every Sunday helping out the threes and fours team at church. In the summer, I’m volunteering at a conference called ‘New Wine’ in the children’s team and I really can’t wait! I just wish I had more time to do it at the moment.
Today’s very small visitor has reminded me not to ‘put all my eggs into one basket’. I love working with small children and just because I’m generally the ‘music guy’ doesn’t mean I have to stop completely. It’s such a privilege to be able to have some small influence on the lives of others whatever the age. I’m rambling now, but the point is, this made my day!
