Busy Day; Magic Moment

"The power of Thought, the magic of the Mind!"
Lord Byron
You know those days?
RACE home from work: Check
Pick kid up from school: Check
Race to Physical Therapy: Check
Do excercises quickly: Check
Run back out to car because you have to
RACE home,
Make dinnner,
Do homework,
Laundry,
Clean the kitchen,
Go to another Doctor....
Well, our afternoon was sailing right along.
I picked Kaish up from school.
No nice loving words,
I was way too busy being ANNOYED at the slow car in front of me.
Don't they know we have a zillion things to do tonight?
Race to Physical Therapy,
Race inside, Race thru the exercises.
Race, Race, Race.
Physical therapy is over and I run to the car,
Start it up-
and that's when I notice.
NO Kaish.
Where the heck could this kid be?
Doesn't he know how busy today is?
Apparently not.
I found him sliding around on the ice-
Pretending to be a seal.
He is such a blessing.
I just can't believe that out of all the kids in the whole wide world
Jesus gave me the very best one.
"Love and magic have a great deal in common.
They enrich the soul, delight the heart. And they both take practice."
Nora Roberts

"Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Arthur C Clarke
"The universe is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper."
Eden Phillpotts


Do you have any tricks I can practice so this doesn't keep happening to me?

Oh my, they know how to keep us young, and they know what is important in life. You know, how to stop and smell the roses along the way, or more appropriately, stop and slide on the ice. :) Enjoy the rest of the day!!!

Hey, thanks for stopping by my site. I hope you will try my recipe. It really is good and very different. I am pulling for the Cardinals since they have never won and I tend to pull for the underdog, all though frankly-I don't particularly care! Blessings.

R~why do we do that? I know my Little T is so forgiving! We try to cram so much into our lives I wonder what we are really missing. If you find the answer let me know. I'll pray for us both!
Love U.

I love those pics!! He is such a fun kid!!

SassyMomma said...

You gotta LOVE kids! Their NEVER to busy to stop and play!! =)
Isn't being a Mom the best!!

jlo said...

I fall into the same trap. Sometimes I get so busy that I forget to enjoy ANYTHING!! YOu always have a way of reminding me of what I should be doing!

Alicia said...

Oh my gosh, how incredibly cute!!!!!

Kids have the ability of teaching us the spiritual discipline of joy if we're willing to learn . . . a spiritual discipline, by the way, that is way underated! Unfortunately for adults, joy is usually a discipline - for children, it's a way of life.

Brandi said...

That is so precious - I think kids are great at making us slow down and see what is really important!

Looks like you had ice just like us!!

jennykate77 said...

I love this! He is such a great kid...full of life and laughter. You are very blessed!! These pics are fantastic!

Hope you had a great Thursday!

Love the picture and the moral to this story! You are blessed and you know it...that is so important. I think we all get caught up with "life" and it's easy to take our eyes off our "prizes" in life...those people or blessings right in front of us.

g said...

Oh, yeah. Sliding on the ice - god, he looks so full of joy!!!!

What fun.

Take a breath. As parents we can get so wrapped up in the day-to-day that our children have to remind of what is important living life!

Julie said...

love those pictures, he looks like he is having so much fun... you are a good mommy!

Thank you, sweet friend, for the reminder to slow down and smell the flowers along the way. Kaishon's smile is so infectious! Makes me want to run outside and slip and slide...of course, that would hurt BIG TIME, as we have no snow! Hmmm...maybe I should rethink that! LOL!

You really have been blessed with a very special boy who loves life...and YOU!♥

Live.Love.Eat said...

As always, so sweet!!!!!

Brooke said...

pretending to be a seal? how cute! :)

isn't it great when they are blissfully unaware of the stresses of life?

big hair envy said...

What a precious boy! He OBVIOUSLY has his priorities in order:) Must be his upbringing.....

Edwina at The Picket Fence said...

Looks like he is having a fun time. And you are so blessed to have him and he is blessed to have such a good MOM

mimi said...

Your post is so sweet. He's so fun!

M said...

At that point I probably would have joined in for some ice sliding!

drewmark19 said...

Glad you took a minute to soak in the moment. We tend to miss quite a bit in life in our hurry to get from one place to another. Children are a great reminder for us to slow down....take it in.

DD said...

Oh my heart!!! This was the greatest!! Oh to be a kid again, or to at least have the heart of a kid! He is so precious, the Lord has blessed you abundantly, Becky!!!

Karen Deborah said...

very very sweet, the joy in a boy!

Nicole said...

What a cutie! What a great smile!

themrs said...

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh wow. You have got to figure out how to slow down. Really, it is not good for you.
And that little Kaish...he is trying to help you out. You need to play!!!
He is a doll.

Grandma J said...

Glennis said...
