For a few weeks now, I’ve been taking the kids to Barnes and Nobles once a week for lunch as well as to do our usual hang out in the children’s section thing. Micah is a boy after his mama’s own heart and loves to be at Barnes and Nobles. We get to the cafe, Micah insists on sitting in high chair and they calmly eat their sandwiches and always, always, there is the long awaited big cookie treat at the end! Well, yesterday after finding a table in the cafe, I realized I had forgotten my purse, wallet, etc at home. I began inwardly freaking out because I figured Micah would make a scene when he found out there would be no cookie treat today! But no…my little boy did not even mention it and there was no scene to speak of. To me, this was a big sacrifice for a little three year old to have to make as he had been thinking about the cookie all morning. Yet, when it could not come, he handled it so maturely! Sadly, I was more upset about having to forego the latte I’d been anticipating!
My son is growing up and to know he will soon be the oldest of three, these little signs of blessing going on in his life make me so happy! To see who he is more often and not always focusing on what he “is not” or “could be”…what a breakthrough this mindset has been to me lately! He is such a blessing and a joy! In all I have, God has given me far more than I will or could ever deserve!
