I continued to clean up the floor and table. I relaxed a little and told Sis it was okay and that she could have a new one. Inwardly though I was still feeling annoyed. Annoyed that this little girl spills her drinks A LOT. Annoyed at myself for not putting the lid on the cup. Annoyed, annoyed, annoyed.
Then Baby George looked at me and asked, "Mommy, when you were little did you ever spill your cocoa?".
Oh. That little boy humbled me to the core. Instantly I softened and gave Sis the reassurance that she needed. We enjoyed our treats and then headed in to the library.
Thank you God for the gift of my sweet children and the lessons they teach me.
