Keilee do you want to go or not? I asked her this 10 times Sunday night. Monday was Homeschool Days at a farm and corn maze. It was an hour from here and my first inclination was to say “Let’s not go”. It’s easy to say no. Saying yes requires action.
We made the decision at 7:00 AM Monday to go and we had the best day. The weather turned cooler and we had a new audio book (John Green’s “Turtles All the Way Down”) so we set off.
We had the most beautiful day.
I swear she said “Silly face!”
Horse! (What this picture doesn’t show is him bopping me in the head, knocking my sunglasses off and breaking them!)
Pick a pumpkin!
She loved this sweet horse!
It was a beautiful day.
Swinging on ropes!

Then we went down the road to The Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament. It is beautiful there.
All in all it was a beautiful day. That would have never happened if we had said “NO”.
Even if it’s a bit edgy, a bit out of your comfort zone, saying yes means that you will do something new, meet someone new and make a difference in your – and likely in others’ lives as well. Yes is what keeps us all young. It’s a tiny word that can do big things. Say it often. ~Josh Billings
