A friend shared this story earlier today and I couldn’t resist sharing it because it really is so hard this time of year and this mom, well she acknowledged, apologized and carried on. That’s all we can really do, isn’t it…? Thank you Meridith for sharing! “But here’s when I really noticed your family. I saw you again, a few minutes later, in a different part of the store. You had squatted down and were holding the kids by the hands. You looked right at them and said “I’m sorry. I’m so sorry that I yelled and that I lost my cool. I’m feeling really stressed by being here on such a busy day, and I got scared. I’m sorry I took it out on you.” Their faces lit up and they reached out to hug you. And I cried next to a five gallon jar of pineapple as I witnessed loving parenting and humanity in action.”
