I saw one of my favorite babies today at Chapters. She has just learned to walk and was showing off. I got down on the floor and held out my arms.
Toddle, toddle, toddle... sit. Grin at us. Yay!!!
Toddle, toddle, toddle- sudden lurch into me. I catch her and she leans against my shoulder, then looks up at me, seemingly confused to find herself there.
I looked up at her dad. "Uh, was that a hug?"
"Mm, I think it was a stumble she didn't know what to do with... so she turned it into a hug."
Oh, the spiritual analogies.
"Should I stumble again,
still I'm caught in Your grace..."
