Father Daughter Moment

From the annuals of fatherhood comes this heart warming tale.

After a long day with the family, I carried a tired and crying princess upstairs. We sat down together her balling, me ready to do the same. As we sat there I realized that we had something to talk about.

Me: I’m sorry, I got mad at you today.
Her: (instantly stops crying)
Me: Do you forgive me?
Her: (nods)
Me: I got frustrated and didn’t handle that in the right way. I’m sorry. But you need to understand that God tells you to listen and obey your mommy and daddy. (more nodding) And God tells us that we need to teach you the right way to live. (more nodding) So together we both need to listen to God. And I’m sorry that today I didn’t set the right example for you.

After that I started to pray and she asked for her crib, going to sleep without a whimper. Just a beautiful moment. ( a spoil from the day’s battle 🙂 )
