"I Love Talking With You, Mommy" - my High
So this is the third and final day of our video shoot for the Sticky Faith parent curriculum. Come January 2012, we will be releasing 5 pretty cool sessions of DVD curriculum through Zondervan Publishing geared to help families and churches develop deeper faith in kids.
The first two days have been fantastic. The team that flew here from Michigan is off the charts. We’ve had a blast, and done some pretty cool experiments, like me driving a minivan & talking on camera at the same time (it’s harder than walking & chewing gum). We’ve been working on this curriculum for the last few months and so far, it’s going even better than I expected.
Last night after 12 hours of shooting and re-shooting, we were done for the day. Our kids are at my dad’s house this week so I called them just as they were going to bed. Our daughter, Krista, said she wanted to talk to me about a problem. She then proceeded to ask me questions about how she handled a situation with one of her cousins. She was wondering if she had done the right thing. After talking through her various options for a few minutes, she said to me, “I love talking with you, mommy.” (Yes, I know that once my kids hit adolescence, it won’t be always be so warm and fuzzy, but I’m basking in the glow of those sorts of comments now.)
As I told Dave later about my conversation with Krista, I told him that those 4 minutes were the best part of my day. Isn’t it interesting that the high wasn’t the more glamorous video shoot (yes, I even had a make-up and hair person for the day) but the 4 minutes talking about a problem with one of the 4 people I care about most in the world?
I’m learning myself that much of Sticky Faith stems what happens in those 4 minute windows. Those windows are often the “highs” of my days.
