noticing a few things.














1. i don't think i have ever done a post without a picture.
does that mean i am a visual learner?

2. i have never had a tea party with my boy.

3. never knew how quickly a tea party could be over.
boys don't like to hang out and chat.
they sort of eat and go.

4. conversations with jack are therapy for me.

[giving jack his brownie and milk]
jack: can i have more than this?
me: well, what does God say about that?
jack: hmm....[no response]
me: he asks you to be thankful for what you have.
[1 minute later...done with his brownie]
jack: can i have more brownie?
me: i think you need to be thankful for what you have.
jack: mama, what does God ask you to do?
me: you tell me.
jack: he tells you to give me more.

i get it sweet boy!
more! more! more! don't we always just want more!
Lord, help me to be thankful for what i have
and
lovingly
show
that
to
my
children.

Lord, i pray today that you are enough.

happy monday!

This boy uses logic very well. I am so impressed but also had to chuckle. I just love to read about these precious little moments.

Love you, Mom
