Words of Wisdom…

I just had to share some feel good thoughts on this Friday evening…

I was talking to my kids this evening about listening, doing what they are asked, not whining, etc. after a lot of all of the above today.  I was raising my voice and feeling (and looking) more exasperated than I wanted to, but I was frustrated (as parents can get now and then :)).  My daughter stopped, held me close, and whispered in my ear very quietly “We’re still learning.”  It stopped me in my tracks and put a smile on my face and a new warmth in my heart.  She was so right, and suddenly all of my frustration began to melt away.  They are still learning, and I need to be patient with them while they learn :).  So later tonight when I was tucking her into bed, I held her in a tight hug and whispered in her ear very quietly “I’m still learning too.”  Then I gave her a big smile, hugged her even tighter and told her I love her.  Wise beyond her years….
