As I began my trek back up the hill I was thinking about the previous 10 minutes. It hadn't been much time. I said goodmorning to a few kids in the halls, checked in with the teacher, read a short story, tied a shoe, gave a goodbye kiss, and said hello to a few parents and children as I left the school. Not much in reality. But my brain fast-forwarded ahead ten years. Is it not in these short moments now that we build the relationships that keep us engaged in the lives of our children and their friends as they get older?
