The easy yes

She asked if she could join me in painting as I worked on a chalk paint project on the front porch.  I embarrassingly admit that my first instinct was to say no.  Mostly because I selfishly didn’t want to be disrupted, and I wasn’t thinking about her sweet desire to work beside her mama.  Mom fail #99,999.

I am so glad I chose the easy yes instead.

She quietly and methodically set up her temporary studio, arranging everything just so.  And then we created together, side-by-side.  Sometimes we were silent.  Other times we both put down our work and just chatted.  It was an ordinary afternoon that was transformed into a beautifully precious time of connection and togetherness.  I am so thankful I didn’t miss it.
