Isn't it funny how a two year old can turn Us into a two year old. It does show us where we are in our spiritual walk doesn't it. I enjoyed your writing, I could just see this little one playing in the polish.
As a mother of a two year old, I felt as if I was reading my own experience. Wonderful description. Also, how beautiful to know that He who lives in us is becoming more and more of what people see as our horrible nature is taken over by His! Praise Him...
It is good when we can recognize our own weaknesses and faults and see the mercy of God who forgives all. Your two-year old was able to forget the anger and see only a "mommy who loves her". I think that is the essence of God's mercy - love.
Well done!!

Thank you for sharing this. I remember similar revelations when my children were young. Keep writing!
This is so good,something that, as a mom of three I could easily identify with. Thank the Lord He is full of mercy and takes us into His arms and forgives us, much faster than we forgive ourselves. It has often taken my own children, when they were little especially, to show me just how understanding God is, and how full of grace and mercy He is. Wonderfully written. The dialogue was right on, too close to home actually,grin. Keep up the great writing hon.God bless.
Oh yeah, Congratulations on getting 2nd place.:0) Good work!!:0)
