If You Give THIS Mom A Moment....

It's time for another Thursday Workshop with our beautiful hostess, Kat.

The Prompts:

1.) If You Give A Mom A Moment...
Inspired by Heidi from Sacred And Profane)

2.) What's the message you would craft
(inspired by Heidi from Sacred and Profane after she read this post at Minor Catastrophes)

3.) Your Fall favorites.
(inspired by me)

4.) If your pet could talk, what would you want to know?
(inspired by KK from Kamp KK (but not the KKK))

5.)If you could only focus on three things in life and pursue them fully, leaving everything else, what would they be and why?
(inspired via tweet by Sarah Mae from Like A Warm Cup Of Coffee)

If you give this mom a moment, she would lay silently, pretending to be sound asleep while her wee-est one kneels by her bed to pray.

If you give this mom a moment, she would peek through her eyelashes at that sweet little blonde with her hands held together and eyes squeezed tight.

If you give this mom a moment, she would take the time to cherish the words that her precious little gift spoke to Jesus.

If you give this mom a moment, she would hear "Dear Jesus. Please don't ever let me grow up so that my mom stops reading to me. And thank you for our food. And thank you for our house. And thank you for my family and my dog. And thank you for my closet. And thank you for my toys. And thank you for the sun and the moon. And please I want a cat and a dog. All men."

If you give this mom a moment, she would immediately consider blogging this, because sometimes a beautiful moment is made all the more beautiful when it is shared.

If you give this mom a moment, she would spend it being thankful that as tired as she was, she spent it cuddled up to her girl instead of rushing off to do the dishes and that last load of laundry.

I hope you all have a wonderful moment-filled day!
