"By small and simple things are great things brought to pass." (Alma 37:6)
One of my daughters was upset with her sister who was, in her opinion, taking too long in the bathroom. Her sister’s crime? Clipping her toenails!
I joked with the daughter for a minute, and then I teased her, “There’s a great secret in life. It’s spelled P-A-T-I-E-N-C-E.”
Her reply: “I hate that word.”
As I’m typing, I get a phone call. From another daughter who is outside.
Her: “Mom! Peter says he’s having a water fight outside. While I’m tanning.”
Me: “You better get another towel or an umbrella.”
Ahhh: Spring break. Teenage daughters. Bathrooms. Tanning sisters and little brothers armed with water guns! So much fun.
This is what why I have so much on-the-job humor.
Back in my day I would have squirted my sister mercilessly.
Back in the day? I’m pretty sure that if your sister showed up with a water gun, you would have no problem jumping right back in. That’s one thing I love about your family–you are so good at playing together!
