Worst Appa Ever

Arden wrote the family an apology letter after she had a little emotional outburst:

Apologies are good for the soul.

We all know what it’s like to say stuff that we don’t mean, especially when we’re feeling hurt and sad. A huge part of life is being able to say those magic and life-giving words:

I’m sorry.

I told my daughter that I was really hurt when she told me that I was the “worst appa ever” and I even got those very famous words: “I hate you!

Ooph.

But, I also told her that I loved her and there was nothing that she could do to change that, so, I don’t get mad when she gets mad at me (or, I try my best not to…).

She smiled.
