Saying Yes

I've been trying to say yes more often. Sometimes as a mom I find that I'm spending too much time saying no. No, to more screen time, to sugar, to purchases, to requests, to lots of things.

I think I say no so often that it just automatically comes out of my mouth. I need to work on this.

Listen, and breath and then decide.

Sis asked me if she could get out Play-Doh. I wanted to say no. But, I said yes....even though I really didn't want to. I was inwardly cringing because I was busy and I knew it would mean extra cleaning for me.

But, Sis taught me a lesson. Sometimes my kids surprise me. I'm encouraged to say yes more often.

God (and Moms) love a cheerful cleaner. Okay, I know the saying is that God loves a cheerful giver. Cleaning or giving me cleaning help...same thing! Love this helpful girl. She cleaned up every single bit of her mess.


  1. LOVE IT - sometimes our kids need to understand WHY we say "no" and will help us with the "yesability." Thank you for posting.
