forgiveness

Yesterday, as I took a moment away from the craziness, I sat in the hot tub trying to sooth some sore muscles. My husband and children had just been in it, but I got home right as they were getting out.

Maggie walked over to me with a very serious look on her face.

“Mom, you know when you sometimes get really mad at me?”

Gulp.

“Uh, yes?”

“Well, it would be nice for you tell me that you forgive me. I would like to hear that.”

Gulp.

“Of course I forgive you! Did you think that I didn’t? I always forgive you.”

She smiled and both of us held back a few tears.

“Well, from now on, you should say it out loud instead of just in your head,” she said.

Point taken.
