“Being a student of the heart is not a high value job in the world we live.”
True words quoted from a fellow blogger I follow. Perhaps it is why we are drawn to blogging…after conversing with children all day it is nice sometimes to reconnect with the bigger words again and elaborate on something in adult language. Whatever it is, I have met this blogger IRL and enjoy her writing immensely too. The bonus sometimes (like today) is finding a perspective that rings true for my life as well.
One thing is for sure, you are definitely not wasting your life my dear. If this is what God has called you to do then it is definitely not time wasted. It may not be valuable in the world we live but this world has it’s priorities a bit mixed up anyway. This was a worry I had too but every day I am reminded that it was the right decision for us as well and, at the end of the day, you can be a student in life or all your life but you can’t buy a degree for a position in your child’s life nor a career in heaven. So rock on with your bad self mama. Your degree may be collecting dust for now but you’re sparkling in the eyes and minds of those little ones. 🙂
