I was in the middle of cleaning this morning (always remember I clean when I am frustrated :))
Maddie came home quickly to say hi and drop some stuff off.
Maddie: Hey Mom how come the kids didn't get to seminary this morning?
Me: Dad wasn't able to take them. I didn't have to explain the reasons.
Maddie: Well then I'll take them.
(which means a 100 km round trip for her almost every morning and getting up before 6 am)
Me: Maddie I can't ask you to do that,
Maddie: You didn't. I want too.
Me: Why do you care so much about Seminary for your brother and sister?
Maddie: Because Mom, I know how much seminary helped me.....I'll do it until things settle down for Dad, no worries
I hugged her and told her I loved her as she left...
I then sat and let the tears flow.
Sometimes my rotten, ungrateful teenagers answer my prayers. I love that Maddie of mine. Thank you.
