Everyone makes mistakes sometime
Today I was busily pounding away on my keyboard preparing for an upcoming ministry event. I was keeping an eye on the clock and trying to make the best use of my time while my two year old napped. What I failed to remember was that for some reason the time on my computer was still wrong and I hadn't bothered to change it yet. I was startled when the phone rang and caller ID displayed the elementary school. Nancy, the ever so sweet school secretary told me Hunter was waiting for me. I yelped in disbelief that I had forgotten my kindergarten son. There he was standing at the office window waiting for me. When we got into the car I apologized profusely and he said, "Mom, it's ok. I forgive you. Don't you know everyone makes mistakes sometime?" I marveled at his tender willingness to forgive so quickly. I wondered if I would have been forgotten, would I have been so quick to say, "everyone makes mistakes sometime?"
