"Common Ground": my little corner of the blogosphere where I talk (a lot-wink) about the things that matter most to me: My relationship with my Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ, homeschooling, adoption, homemaking, parenting, "spousing." (yeah, yeah....I know that's not a word.....I made it up-it’s my blog-I can do things like that! Ha!)

Since my life isn’t all that different from yours, hopefully we can find some COMMON GROUND & learn from each other. Please share your thoughts!

Through the Lords’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.

They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness!
Lam. 3: 22 & 23

FFF......."A Day In The Life."

Well, although this is NOT typical of a day in Ruthie’s life, at the close of this post is my absolute favorite picture this week.

& it’s because it’s a perfect example of what it means to give your children their heart’s desire. (& I guess we should do it as often as possible while they are little & their requests are fairly simple!)

Ruth found an empty Rubbermaid box big enough to climb in a few nights ago, & promptly placed all her special blankets & stuffed animals inside.

It must have looked super comfy-because next, she climbed in, too & asked her daddy if she could sleep in the box!

& he said, “YES!”
(My children are lucky, though, because they have a daddy who says “yes” to some pretty fun ideas!)

All this was arranged BEFORE I had anything to say about it.

& you know what?

I am glad, because that is one thing I would probably have said “NO” to.

& then we would have missed this wonderful moment:

(By the way, this is one of my first attempts to use my NEW Photoshop Elements! I like the way it turned out!)

Have you said "yes" to anything lately-& then been thankful you did?

So sweet!! I'm like you and probably would've said no. Glad your hubby agreed. I'm sure that made an incredible memory for her! You did great with Elements! Very cute!

That is adorable. I make it a goal to say yes to as many little things for the kids as I can...it's something I struggle with.

Great post! Good reminder to say Yes more instead of no. Did she end up sleeping there the whole night?

Leslie said...

Kim & Dave said...

Anne-she slept there until about 5 am! I would have had such a crick in my neck!
