It was one of those mornings that is just a bust from the beginning. We got up too late, I had to get myself ready for work, while also getting the kids ready. Matt was sort of on his own and I kept reminding him to eat breakfast and pack his lunch. We scrambled out the door and I got the kids buckled, knowing Kaden would get to school 3 seconds before the bell rang. I was about to pull out of the garage when I realized I had forgotten the bag with Beckham's clothes and diaper. Yep, we were running so behind the poor kid was still in his pajamas. I ran in the house to get them and realized Matt had gotten distracted. I got annoyed. I was already feeling bugged by the morning and that sent me over a little and I snapped at him. I felt bad but I ran out slamming the door behind me. Exasperated, I got in the car and put on a little smile for the boys.
You did a good job getting your school stuff ready this morning. I'm sorry we are running behind, Kaden.
-Did ya forget somethin, Mama?
Yeah, I did.
-Was it your patience?
Yeah, I guess I forgot that too. I'm sorry.
-Oh it's okay Mama, you'll find it again soon. I'm sure of it!
What a sweet little boy. At first I felt bad. Actually, I was already feeling bad for being so grumpy and I was pretty sure that my day started off wrong and would probably be tainted. Then I thought about what he really said. His innocent little remark made me think. It was up to me to find it again. I decided to make the day good and forget about the rough start to the morning. I felt so happy thinking of my little boy all day; his quickness to forgive and forget and see the happiness in absolutely everything. I needed his sweet reminder and his unconditional love this morning. My day did turn out really good, and I thank him for it.
