We have a lady who signs for the deaf during the church service. She stands on the platform not far from the preacher. We've heard complaints about where she stands, and I kind of agreed that she didn't need to be up there, but what I saw this morning changed my mind.
I looked across the way and saw a little kindergartner sitting on her daddy's lap and following the signing the best she could. Amazing how close she came to the right signs. I loved watching her. Not only was she learning something invaluable, it was probably helping her listen to what was being said.
Sometimes we don't know what kids are picking up. I know I'm really bad at making snap judgements, but watching this child made me realize (again), that the world doesn't revolve around me.
Am I the only one who has a problem with that?
