I just had to share this fun photo with you! Does anyone else ever have a difficult time thinking? I sure do- I’ve been known to even forget my name! The last few days my little ones have had so many questions that I can barely catch my breath before the next question comes flying at me. Finally, Elisha could see that I was trying to concentrate on a writing project and asked if I was okay. I assured him that I wanted to hear what he and the others had to say. I love the fact that they share their thoughts, dreams and concerns with me. I love answering all their questions however, at the moment I was really trying to concentrate and every time someone asked me a question I completely forgot what I was thinking. We giggled about my lack of concentration skills and pretty soon he returned with a crown that he made just for me! He "crowned" me with the crown of no interruptions and then explained to the children how it works. He said, "When you see mommy wearing this crown you have to wait to talk to her so she doesn’t lose all her thoughts." All of the children, including the toddlers acted as if what he said was the law. However, it wasn’t too long before a little one failed to notice my "crown of no interruptions" and started asking me something when mid sentence they caught themselves and said, "Oops! I am sorry mommy. I didn’t see your crown was on." I couldn’t help but laugh and hug them tight. Yes, the thought was gone so I had to retrace my thoughts to get back to where I was… but it was worth it! My little ones are just so precious. I enjoy them richly!!!
With much love,
Mrs. Joseph Wood
Bekah decided to take photos of my crown in use.
This is me trying to retrace those "lost thoughts"
