I remember when my son was 11, we stopped to get gas. As we drove off and miles later, Ryan said, "Oh Mom--I am sorry but I forgot to put the gas cap back on!" .....I said, "Well it's too far to go back, but not to worry. It's only a 'thing' and things can be replaced. What matters is each other, because people can not be replaced.
I think this captures his expression.
The other day, my husband says, "I have bad news! I accidentally dropped your favorite vintage sherbet dish. Sorry but it broke.
"Oh that's ok Honey. Stuff happens. Glad you didn't cut yourself on the glass." lol
Things That Really Don't Matter:
The sun didn't come out today.
The mailman was late again.'
Oops--forgot and squeezed the toothpaste from the top!
Someone hung the toilet paper wrong!
Lightening strikes twice!...
.. I filled my car with gas and after several miles, my son again piped up, "Oh no Mom! I forgot to put the gas cap back on!" .. we drove on, in silence. (I am happy he turned out well--Is the manager of a large construction company and I know he is attentive to what is important!) ..
Thanks for stopping by and remember: Many things can be replaced like a gas cap but loved ones can not.…
Spark friends matter to me--so please take care of yourself!
