I hope you appreciate this, Lady.


I sent my six-year-old daughter to deliver some lemons and oranges from our yard to the widow next door. Worried that she might rudely deliver the fruit and leave without a word, I called to her, “Don’t forget to say, ‘You’re welcome.'”

When my daughter returned, she gave me the full report: “I rang the doorbell, and when the lady opened the door, I said, ‘You’re welcome!’ and handed her the bag.”

    • It’s true. I couldn’t be mad at her. I just need to be more specific. Funny thing is I was so proud of her for doing it. “Awh, my little girl is growing up. I’m sending her on errands to the neighbor.” We’ll do better next time. 🙂 Thanks.
