My mom said it, and now I’m saying it! Part 3


Oh my goodness, that one brings back memories!  I’m not known for being the most flexible person so there were innumerable times growing up when I would be circumstantially thrown off the “planned” course for the day and Mom would simply say, “Adapt!”  Merriam-Webster’s Student Dictionary defines adapt as “to change so as to fit a new or specific use or situation.”  Usually that change needed to happen in my attitude.  And so it goes with my kids.  When a friend can’t come over as planned…”Adapt!”  When it’s raining when we were supposed to go to the park…”Adapt!”  Truth be told, I’m saying it as much for my benefit as theirs!

It comforts me to know that in this world of change, there is one thing that will never change…
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”  Hebrews 13:8

Hearing your mom’s words echo in your head?  Please share!
