I was at Mass with DD this morning. I have one simple rule with my children during Mass: you can not leave the pew. I was sitting in the middle of the bench that is up against the wall. DD could roam from the wall to me, so about five feet. However, she was not happy with that. She wanted to go pass me and get out. She would not even look at the space behind her.
It made me think: "How human to want what we can see and not have, but not look back and be gratefull for what we do have."
