Until I can get to Christmas recapping (hope everyone had a wonderful holiday), here I am to share one more take-away from my developmental psychology class because I really liked this video. (Actually, my sister shared this video clip with me a couple years before and I’ve thought of it often since then, and loved the reminder to watch it again during my class.)
It kind of goes together with the “welcoming response” thoughts I shared a couple days ago (HERE), and the POWER of connecting.
Eye to eye.
Heart to heart.
The older I get the more I realize connection and “being there” triumph over anything else. Things like a fancy Christmas gift or a beautifully spotless home will never compare to the gift of “being there” with our children. Or our husband. “Being there” with our friends, even when it has to be behind a mask or through a computer screen.
It’s interesting how this pandemic has taken away much of our social togetherness, but it doesn’t have to take away the power of connection.
That connection is what makes the world go around.
