I really liked the image this story brought to my mind, of the child being kind to help the mom when she got sick. I like the idea of returning to childhood(sometimes). I loved the reference to always being God's child. One thing stood out that tripped my mind for a moment... the use of "patients" when I think you meant to use "patience."

Thanks for sharing this personal experience. I think I'll copy it and have my teenager read it. Perhaps it might give her something to think about.
Oops! Thanks Lisa. This came on the heels of nearly losing my patience with my patients after the flu ran through our home :( As for children -- mine give me truly wonderful pictures of God and His relationship with us as His children. It's amazing how they can, on occasion, rise above when least expected. And gentle reminders to them never hurt. :)
