It's not quite a quiver full, but it's a start!

This Is What Happens...

He did most of this all on his own!

There's something that happens when you learn to be a "YES" mom. When you quit waiting for later and start to do it now. When you learn the joy of playing with your children. Something happens when you learn to just make a mess, go with the flow, and choose to learn from your children rather than just teach them. Today I was able to expand on my list. Today I realized how much time has gone by, and I praised God for the time I have left for my children (even though I don't even know how long that may be). Today, my son showed me something I never thought he would be able to do at his tender young age of 3. My son surprised me because I gave him the chance. I couldn't wait "until" he got older, but somewhere along the way, he already has. And if I don't take the time to just sit, be still, and savor these moments, they will be gone in the blink of an eye.


  1. I just had to click on the "YES" mom link and check it out. Very convicting points you made!
    I laughed, because I had just written on becoming a Yes! mom as well. It's a real stretch sometimes, but it is so worth it!

    Your son looks like he put a whole lot of concentrated effort into his letters. How wonderful he has a mom who is so loving and supportive.

  2. I saw your Yes mom post today! I also laughed when I saw your post about your husband since my scheduled post tommorrow is about mine! Great minds!

    He had so much fun with his letters! When he was diagnosed with autism 2 years ago he was completely non verbal and had zero interest in anything other than floating dust particles. I never would have imagined this would be a future memory. Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

  3. I really enjoyed this post. I wanted to laugh and cry. My son is almost 10 yrs old and I'm amazed at how the time does fly by. I missed so much, but that only makes me determined to not miss more. God bless you, and thank you so much for linking up at NOBH.
