I Don’t Know

The kids never question the things I do not know.

They happily look it up with me and

we learn. About night hawks and sparrows,

why the clouds are there, stars and planets,

gross crawly bugs and insects (what is the difference).

We learn. As I teach them, they teach me. I learned that

I enjoy creating ways to make them laugh. 

Not the groans they emit when I tell corny jokes, but

those deep belly laughs and musical giggles. Things I celebrate.

I do not know how time will change things. 

Where the next laugh will be.

I do know that I am learning along side them.

Which is the most abundant blessing.
