5 Minute Friday: Beyond
On Fridays we write for 5 minutes flat without any REAL thinking. Join everyone over at GypsyMama for lots of fun on Fridays!
I wasn’t sure what I was going to write about today. Beyond, what does that mean to me. Last night I took a picture of our ALMOST 2 year old while he was asleep. He has impressed me far BEYOND my expectations. Our little monkey was not much of a sleeper in his younger days! I’m not sure if he slept for the first year. One day as we were driving around a few weeks ago, Monkey fell asleep. Nana said we should just take the leap and put him in his big boy bed. So, that day, I put him down in his bed and he had a great nap. Later that night, I told Will that I thought it was time. Want to know what his response was? He looked at me with that cute face of his and said “nooooo”, do we have to do this now?!? He was worried that we were going to have to go all super-nanny on Monkey to get him to bed. I said Will, its time. We went beyond our comfort level and put that cutie in his big boy bed. Guess what happened? He never got up. Went right to sleep, and he has done it every night since. I’m so proud of this little monkey. Last night I posted a photo on Instagram when I realized that he was holding a ball in his hand. When I zoomed in on the ball it said HE LIVES.. God gives beyond what we need…Amazing how a lil boy can remind us where our focus should be. Beyond the stress of the day, beyond the cries and the toys on the ground, and the running around with our heads cut off.God is right there for us and with us and he is Beyond what we could ever imagine.
