<? echo $type; ?> The little things really do count

I walked in to take my two-year-old to the restroom at the mall the other day, which is a pretty common occurrence with most two-year-olds. I think after a while my daughter likes to just visit any potty whether she has to go or not. So needless to say, I have seen them all. But on this particular day, she looked up and saw the soap dispenser was mounted on the wall in a lower spot than normal, right where she could reach it.

You should have seen the way her face lit up. She said, “Mommy, look, my size!” It was so precious. I laughed to myself, but I couldn’t help but think that the little things really do matter!

Do the things in your ministry reflect that they were made for kids, that kids here are important and valued? Do they walk in and feel like this is a place for them? It’s funny that potties can make me think about things like this … apparently that is what happens when you spend so much time there!
