A time to share { a memory }

The memory I want to share also taught me a huge lesson:
To keep myself open to the possibility of YES.  

My daughter and I had been out shopping when she spotted a make your own crystal activity set.  Soon came "This is soooo cool" and "Please Mom can I have it".  I thought it was silly - how could you make something as elaborate as a crystal that grows in the earth?  No way I thought, but she persisted and so I bought it for her.  I was already preparing what to tell her when she put it together and her crystal never formed.


Of course, her little project worked and instead of one - two crystals formed.  I keep it out to remind myself to stop being such a pessimist, and to stay open to the possibility of YES.

What memory will you share?

If you're not familiar with the inLinks widget, click here to watch a video tutorial I made.  And a big thank you to everyone who shared a photo in last week's gallery!

Hi Bella, I love your photo and your story. Isn't it wonderful what can happen when we get out of our own way? I was still trying to decide what to write when I read your post, and knew I had to write about my son.
