The Little One with the Cleaning Rag

" Hey, Mom, what is the meaning of 'work'?"

My son, who was barely two years old at the time, surprised me with this question. Stunned, I sat there and kept quiet. He was sitting on his colorful high chair at breakfast and eating his honey bread with pleasure. His clear eyes shone with curiosity. With a direct gaze he waited for an answer, so natural it seemed to him, because I was the big one who always knew everything. I stared at the red fire engine on the table. Emptiness in my head. We were alone on this sunny spring morning. "Come on, let's find out!", I said to him after the pause in my thoughts, lifting him out of the highchair.

I handed him a damp rag and we began wiping down the table. On we went to the bathroom, where we cleaned the sink of hair and toothpaste residue. "And now?", I asked him. "Where do you want the rag to go from here?" He climbed higher on the stool and wiped splatters from the mirror. Then we stalked further into the living room. With detective eyes, he spotted crumbs on the coffee table. Even the few water stains on the parquet disappeared with his magic cloth.
"Now I'm going to play," he said suddenly. He dropped the cloth and away he went.

I stood there and was amazed. Obviously, the little one had understood something.


When the Shoe Fits

then you can walk
for miles
one step at a time
taking one rung at a time
and you know what?
far far above you a force rises with you
playful it lures you
your work transforms into results
just make sure that the shoe fits.

  1. The work, the work, the WORK…get down and dirty to work…the things i love to do, the things I don’t want to do, the things I am lazy to do, the things I don’t know how to do, the things I am scared to do, the things I hate to do… Work is love.

    Thank you for the beautiful story of your son!

    Love and blessings!
