Luckily, I have convinced him to keep his socks where they belong, at least in public. But I cannot keep him from singing the song. In fact, as I was getting dressed this morning, he was entertaining himself with a bravado performance of his beloved soundtrack.
His concert was annoying me. As I was fixing my hair, I was trying to make a mental list of all of the things I needed to do today. After all, it's Christmastime and schedules seem to be busier than ever. I put down my curling iron with the intention of instructing him to quiet down. But just as I approached him, his little brown eyes locked with mine and with a smile, he said, "Hey Momma, wanna sing with me?"
I laughed as I considered the words of his song, "Let It Go." I think I really needed to hear that this morning. Sometimes I do need to slow down just a little, let my "to do" list wait a short while, and enjoy the blessings right in front of me.
We were five minutes late to Mother's Day Out this morning. That's five minutes less I have for my long list of errands. But it's also five minutes that I spent laughing, dancing and singing with my son, and that may be the most important thing I do today.
Promise for today:
1 Peter 5:7 Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.
