A few months ago, my daughter and I got into a fight.
As many mother/daughter fights go, I can’t remember what we were fighting about. I also know that we were a tad nasty to one another.
When I left the house to errand/walk dog, I was still annoyed with her and she was annoyed with me. We usually say “love you” to one another when we part, but this time I know we didn’t.
We were exasperated with one another.
Now, you may remember a few months ago I told you that I was out walking the dog and I witnessed a man get hit by a van.
Well, that incident occurred on the day that she and I had our fight.
So after I returned home from errands, my daughter flew out of her bedroom and hugged me and told me how sorry she was.
See, my daughter has that “Citizen” app on her phone and saw the notice that a pedestrian was hit by a van in the neighborhood that I was going to. She knew I would be in close proximity of the accident and she got worried that it had been me.
So what’s the moral?
I guess there’s different ways you can look at this:
- Don’t fight over stupid things
- Never leave a loved one on an angry note
- You never know what the future holds for you
I’m sure there are a few other lessons and tidbits from this.
What do you think is the greatest lesson that we learn from this situation?
