It's a Goode Life: Why Not?

Today was "Play in the leaves day"... because tomorrow is "Mow the leaves day".

So we lived it up 2 year old style...

Ahhh to be that free again. 

As you know, Miss Add is my life coach :) and recently she has been teaching me something new.


My girl asks me "Why not?" at least 20 times a day.

She has yet to ever ask me "Why?" about anything.

It's always "Why not?"

It is a subtle, yet distinctive difference.  And I like her attitude.

In my life, "Why not?" comes from an attitude of faith and possibility. While, "Why?" often comes from an attitude of skepticism.

"Why not" encourages dreams and creativity. "Why" typically limits them.

I am so thankful that God gave us little Add. 

I think He may have been on to something with that faith of a child thing ;)

So why not? ...Right?

Don't I have the greatest little Life Coach :)

Thanks for a great day Miss Add.

But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these."-Luke 18:16 (New International Version)

1 GOODe Thoughts:

AMEN!!! Isn't it amazing how we grow up thinking we're suppose to raise our children, then we have children and realize that they do much more "raising" of us!?!!? I'm thankful every single day for my "life coach" & I'm a much improved person because of her.
