Love Your Enemies

Danae was handed the “I am PRECOCIOUS” award on graduation day last March 29, 2012.

At lunch, last week….

Danae: You know mom, one time, ********* told me “Who cares about Danae?”

Me: (sigh) You know what, some kids say mean things…..just like you sometimes. Sometimes you say mean things that you don’t really mean. ********** cares about you…

Danae: No, before he/she didn’t.

Me: Ok, but now I’m sure he/she does.

Danae: Yeah.

Me: So forgive. Ok?

Danae: (sighs) Yeah, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES.

6 years old and she’s already learning and living what I only learned when I was an adult. Precocious indeed.
