Another guest post

Family Matters has let me write for them again -Huzzah!  

I would also like to say  a belated thank you to all of my family and friends who were so wonderful to assault their blog with comments for my last post.  It totally made my day, (who am I kidding - it made my week!) and I was very honoured that so many of you took the time to comment so positively.

Here's a snippet from my lastest offerings for FM:

God says yes to us all the time.  He doesn’t demand that we always pray about whether we buy Cheerios or oatmeal, or paint our walls blue or green.  We can die our hair…or not.  We can send our kids to public school…or not.  We have the freedom to do a lot of different things, when our hearts our right.
Why then, am I so prone to say “no” to my kids’ little requests, day in and day out?
It’s a bit of an oxymoron, really.  You’d think I would say yes! all the time because I love doing, I am a.l.w.a.y.s. doing something because, I don’t know, it’s just what I do.
The problem is, saying yes to someone else’s agenda is just about always an inconvenience, or at the very least, an interruption.  It is really easy for me to just say no to the requests within their daily minutiae and ask the kids to go and entertain themselves. If I am feeling particularly snarky, I will give them a chore to do, because, you know, they were bugging me and all.
Again, your comments and thoughts are always appreciated!
