Day 325 ~ "Y"...

"Y"es.  Yes, "Yes" is my chosen word.  (Big Smile.)

Few minutes into, 'what word am I to use for "Y"?'... and believe me I don't know why I even thought of this, but... if I wrote about no for my letter "N", then why not write about (and the choir sings loud) "Yes"?

I would be lying to you, if I told you that I did not get excited when I hear the word Yes (at least when it is in my favor. wink, wink.)  Seriously... be honest now... I know you get a little silly when you hear it too.  ;)

I think the "feeling" you feel today is probably not so different than the one you felt when you were a child, and were told you could have that extra scoop of ice cream or that special toy.

We may feel that we do not hear Yes as often as we'd like... in all actuality, if we listen real closely... we do hear it more than we think.  wink, wink.

One thing is for sure, when I answer my little Calley "Yes", believe it or not, I become the "best mommy" in the whole wide world.  Yes, that's me!  :)   bet you didn't know that the bestest mommy in the whole wide world was a blogger... well now you do!  

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.  
~2 Corinthians 1:20
A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.

~Mahatma Gandhi

Never allow a person to tell you no who doesn't have the power to say yes.

~Eleanor Roosevelt

It is true, we all want to be told yes. I think the only times we like no is when we hear from the doctor 'no you don't have...' But when it comes to doing something I want to do I do look forward to hearing yes!

Saying yes does just make you happier I think! And, it puts a smile on your face, and makes you show your teeth;)
