Saying "No"

"Saying 'No' to some things has allowed me to say 'Yes' to other things." ~Gerri Smalley

I'm a doer. I plan, I do. I reflect, I plan, I do... I'm quite diligent about my goals and aspirations when it comes to my businesses, my serving in church, my friends, my extended family...

But, lately, I've found myself skipping home life. I'm missing, him...

Somehow, I've been missing what's right in front of me. A boy who only wants to spend some time with his Mama...

I'm reflecting, I'm journaling, I'm praying...

I'm noticing him. I'm hearing him.

I'm saying, "No" to one more thing... I'm saying, "Yes" to him.

peace, love and Happy Thanksgiving!!

    1. Thank you very much. I'm learning along with you...

  3. So true! Saying no does mean creating the space to saying yes to what is most important to you.

    1. I'm glad that this lesson came to me. That's for sure. :)
