It was a fine Saturday morning, I had made some snacks earlier and was now busy fixing breakfast. Everyone from my Hubby to all the children were already snacking on…
My little two and a half year old girl came into the kitchen to pick one more puff-puff to eat when I told her breakfast is ready, immediately she dropped it and said “Mum, I am ready for food!!”
When this happened something ran through my mind – even though she was snacking on, she knew what exactly she wanted, and as soon as that which she wanted was mentioned she went for it straight on dropping the alternative.
This brings a lot of questions to my mind for us to answer – Do we know what we want from life? When we see it/them do we recognize it/them? How easy is it for us to let go of the alternatives that have over time looked like the real things?
Be encouraged, it is time to settle for the REAL THING no matter how long we have had ALTERNATIVES.
