Over at Emma’s Hope Book a mother has done something very brave: made a public apology for a mistake.
She starts by quoting her daughter:
“You put the toast in the basement. That made me sad.” Emma stared at me expectantly.
I drew in a breath. My chest felt tight. I knew exactly what she was referring to. We’ve had similar conversations, but she’s never said it so directly.
The article is sad but wonderful. I can’t pull excerpts without destroying the beauty of the story, so I urge you to follow the link and read the rest.
