I really don't have much time to write now that I wrote that long reply but I have to try and share this really quick. Things have been going much better for me lately, especially at church, in regards to how I am socializing with kids. I am not completely comfortable with them but I am certainly a whole lot less nervous around them now. And now, all of a sudden, I am pretty much working with some kids in helping them with music, because we have a youth worship team in our church.
Well, to make a long story short, this Sunday there were some new boys playing instraments and they were going to practice right after church. I was packing up my gear when I noticed this little 7 year old boy holding a very small guitar. I couldn't believe it, he is the adopted brother of one of the other boys. So I said to him, "Oh man, what are you playing?" I really don't know this boy very well but he just looked like I had insulted him or something. He looked down at the ground and wouldn't talk to me at all. I just felt terrible. I did ask him if I could see his guitar and he let me, so I took it and played a few chords and told him it is very nice and gave it back to him, but the whole time he looked like I just told him off or something. I still feel terrible about this and I don't quite know what I want to do about it, if anything. I will write more about it tomorrow if anyone wants. But I would appreciate any comments.
