OK, Half-Full

Among the many lessons I continually repeat to my children is the one of the glass being half-full.

Dad (after sadly looking at the time): I only have forty-five minutes left with you.

Son (smirking): Dad, it’s not half-empty! Look at it as you have forty-five more minutes with us!

Dad (stunned): ”                                  ”

Sure, I’m lonely as could be right now while writing this, doing nothing, but I received an additional forty-five minutes with my kids today.

And that’s made all the difference.

      Smart enough to remember a lesson from Dad and apply it to an appropriate situation! And Dad embraced it, and was proud, on many, many levels.

    Sounds like he listens to you! That must have made your heart happy when he said it.

      Oh man, it stopped me dead in my tracks at first! But then I was was glowing. The proud papa smiled.
