Okay class, it's time to share what you've learned this week. Stop by Musings of a Housewife to see what everyone else learned.
My father-in-law died on Sunday. I had taken my daughter out for the afternoon and when we got home, my husband told me the news. My daughter had only met her grandpa once when she was maybe two years old because they live in Florida and we're in Washington. Basically, she has no memory of the man. But we sat her down to tell her what had happened. Then my sweet little 6 year old girl gave her daddy a long hug and told him, "I'm sorry your daddy died." She sat there and comforted him. It was enough to melt this mommy's heart. What I learned this week was that my daughter is more compassionate than I knew. She's always been caring, but in this act, I saw a Gift. Having her as a daughter makes me truly blessed.
