This Moment...

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo -  capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

A girl who thinks, but needs to take a few moments to rally her courage...if no one else has thought of it, is it right?  Does it break the rules?
Precious Daughter, keep thinking.  Know that your inspiration, wisdom, understanding comes from the God you are learning to fear and love.

(The task at these "Survivor Pool Games" was to use only the chopsticks and move the dry grains of rice from one bowl to the other, as much as one is able to move, in 30 seconds.) 

Marme watched the Sweet Thinker as she moved in the line, arms and hands moving, brow a little scrunched, wheels turning.  Sweet Thinker didn't take the first opportunity, but ended up having another turn, the last person to go...and she did it.  Slips those chopsticks on either side of the bowl, lifted it and carried it to the other side of the table, dumping it into the other bowl.  There was silence for a moment, people were truly surprised.  One dad said '"that girl is a super thinker." 

Marme thought for a moment, "No, that girl is learning to Think.  Learning to trust her ideas.  She is simply, a THINKER!"
