I had to rewash the dishes and when I was done I found her sitting quietly, fighting back tears, behind the couch. I felt h o r r i b l e. I mean, the kid didn't know. I apologized and told her that I was very sorry for being so mean. I hugged her tight and she hugged me tighter. She was so forgiving when I hadn't been...In retrospect, that hug made me think of the Lord. Always ready to forgive when we are ready to seek out forgiveness.
These two teach me so much. About life, about myself, about God. I love them. They drive me crazy at times. But I love them!
