I am back from one of the best trips to family that I have ever been on. The only thing that happened on the plane going was a young boy,2, who's father worked for the airlines. Mom flew free. He was not alone on this journey. There were other children along for the ride. They were all asleep and all of us ,including moms had a Buddha smile because this would be a peaceful trip. THEN IT HAPPENED, he woke up. All he wanted to do is go potty. Go potty momma,go potty. Louder,and louder he called. Mom in the meantime, telling him she was not going to take him anywhere unless he stopped crying. I didn't know who to smack. If a child who you are trying to potty train has to go, take him. This poor kid cried and screamed from the Grand Canyon until we got to Mountain Home Airforce Base just outside Boise. It did give me a learning experience. I learned that when you listen in the correct way a child's distress pulls at your heart. It is next to imposable for me to allow things like this to happen and for the first time I didn't follow that which I was led to do. Rresult? Shame. I,knowing the solution, did not offer , or, as I usually do, just butt in. As I mentioned so many times before, all that happens to or around us is a learning or teaching experience. Things like this happen no matter what religion , beliefs, where you live, what you live in, if you brush your teeth, what color your teeth are or anything else. I learned to take everything,find out that which I was supposed to be taught no matter how frustrating the situation. It helps me in my life and makes me slow down and see through a different eye. Hopefully that young mother learned the lesson she was meant to learn as well. My regret is I did not follow my heart when I should of.
