Over the course of Asher’s life I have shared that there were certain milestones that I was concerned he was delayed in such as clapping, walking, and talking.

Today I noticed him doing things that I wasn’t even aware he was able to do such as carrying a plate of food without dropping it, properly using a spoon, and feeding himself. Things that I previously haven’t allowed him to do because I assumed that he couldn’t without giving him the chance.

I have been so focused on what I decided were delays and short comings that I neglected to put him in positions to soar or recognize his full potential.

My son who is so full of light and is absolutely fearless hardly ever acknowledges what he is unable to do. He just goes for what it is that he wants and he doesn’t stop until he gets it.

I am in a place in my life where things just haven’t gone according to my plan and I have the option to stall and operate out of fear or to step out in faith , fight for what I know is mine, and be fearless like my little boy.

I have decided that I want to be more like Asher.

This is another opportunity for me to let God “do him” in my life and help me to understand my full potential. It may take longer to reach my goals than I originally anticipated but I will keep on until I get there.

I may be delayed, but I have certainly not been denied.
