Taking the time.

Last night reminded me to take the time to listen.  If I had been too busy I would have missed one of the most amazing moments I’ve ever experienced.

We went to the nursing home to see my husband’s grandma for her 89th birthday.  We brought home the balloons from the party.  We were late, the kids were tired and it was way past bedtime.

Trying to get the kids out of the car and up to bed an hour past bedtime is tough. We were tired and ready to relax.  The kids wanted to let the balloons fly up in the air.  We stopped and took 10 minutes to do this. It was SO worth it!!  The Big One said to me that he was sending these balloons to heaven for great nana.  My grandmother passed 2 years ago.  I still can’t believe he remembers her!  Hearing him call up to heaven ‘Jesus can you make sure that these balloons get to great nana’ instantly made me tear up.  This morning he immediately asked if I thought she would have the balloons by now. Of course she has them and she loves them is what I told him.

If I had cut him off, not allowing him to tell me what he wanted to do I would have missed one of the sweetest moment I’ve experienced as a parent.

I found this on Spiritually Speaking.  It is perfect as a reminder to listen and take the time.
