The other day my sweet son was having some difficulty getting his helicopter put together.
He tried and tried until tears began to fall and he gave up in frustration.
When I heard the soft crying, I went to him and helped him out.
He then asked me to play with him
and at the time I had a long list of things to do in a short amount of time.
My first response was to say, "I'm sorry honey, but I am busy at the moment, maybe later."
But before I answered him, I thought about it
and I realized my "Maybe later" answers would begin to add up
and one day that's all I would have from the past....
Maybe later moments instead of precious memory-making moments.
So I dropped everything to spend time with my son
and it was WELL WORTH IT!
Plus I still got everything done on my list :)
The point is I would rather have more time with my son
even if it means unfolded laundry, dirty dishes in the sink, or an un-vacuumed floor
because these blessed moments go quickly and I want to make the most of them!
Cherish the moment and memories
and be thankful for the time you have with loved ones!
"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father
in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ."
Have a blessed Lord's Day!
