Change of Heart!

Last Friday we were getting ready to go out to lunch with the family and we asked the kids to get in the car. Addy came back in and ran to her room. We thought nothing of it as she walked back out and headed for the car. While me and Bry were putting Ky in his car seat Addy came in and said, "Mom and Dad I am sorry I stole money from the car. I was like Alma the younger I had a hard heart like him and I remember that he had a change of heart. His heart was softened and he did what was right, so my heart is soft now. I am sorry I took the money." Trying to keep a serious face,we asked her how much she took and she said it was a dime and lots of pennies. She said she put the money in her room. She decided she should give it back. She came back a minute later and said,"Mom here is a dime and I am not sure how many pennies so I got a lot and I threw in an extra dime." How cute is that! It appears she does listen at times. I just love her.

Wow! I am totally impressed! I can't believe she knows the story so well, and actually learned from it. I have more work to do with my kids!

Aren't these moments the best part about being a parent. We know Addy has a good heart...I wouldn't expect her to handle it any other way.

I love it! You never know what they are picking up during those family home evenings. It gives me motivation to keep doing them even though I wonder if they are even listening! Yeah Addie
