A Lesson in Forgiveness - Maybe

On the way home from church last night, Damon and I could not help but chuckle at our 15 and 16 year old, I mean 5 and 6 year old having this conversation.

LB: Why are you not talking to her, C? It has been forever since you even looked at her!!
C: She called me Baby Carter and I am NOT a baby!!!
LB: She said she was sorry - 2 times!! I think that should mean this is over!!!
C: Well, not for me it's not!!

We interrupted this conversation to talk about forgiveness.

C: What is forgiveness?
LB: It means when someone tells you they are sorry you say you are sor . .. (dramatic pause). I don't know you tell him, Momma.

We continued to talk about forgiveness and what God would want him to do. When we got home . . .

C: Okay, I will talk and look at her again.
LB: This is ridiculous! I can't believe we had to talk about this the WHOLE way home!

Hi Becky! Just circling back from TX here. Thanks for the comment you left in my blog.

So you are past Texans-turned-Tennesseans (?). Where were you from originally?

Anyway, you've got beautiful (and precocious!) kids. And... I love your other blog. Just noted it right now as a resource.

Have a great day!

Ahhhh the determination of a 5/6 year old.

I have to remind mine not to pout, be bossy and unwaivering...everyone has to give from time to time.
