The Day I Was Glad I Listened

There are so many times that we get busy as moms. We are trying to get something done, but today of all days I was so glad I listened!

The Day I Was Glad I Listened

Post # 16

I know that there is a greater power out there that helps us. I am so glad that I listened one day when I was busy!

It was a normal Tuesday afternoon. The kids were all home. I was trying to get something done! I had pulled the laundry out of the dryer and noticed a crayon wrapper…

Huh, that’s weird, I thought…

As I began to fold, I began to see blue spots on everything!

Yes, I washed a blue crayon with the laundry. It was all over Chase’s Flag Football uniform and his new shirt he bought in Hawaii.

I knew I needed to start scrubbing!


The boys took TJ upstairs to play.

I reminded them that he likes to crawl and they needed to watch him!

I began scrubbing and washing crayon out of clothes.

About 10 minutes later something told me, “Go Get TJ!

I initially thought, “He is with the boys…”

“Go Get TJ,” came to me even louder.

I began to run to the stairs and all of a sudden a ball comes bouncing down the stairs. As I get to the bottom, I look up. There he was at the top of the stairs. He is there all by himself. I start up the stairs two by two praying he doesn’t move because if he does he will fall down the stairs… As I run, I yell at the boys to help me. I don’t think I have ever been so scared in my life.


I get there and I grab him. And I squeeze him so tight. I know disaster could have happened. All of this because I listened to that small voice telling me to go get TJ. I don’t even want to imagine what could have been if I did not act on what I heard.
