Six Sentence Story: Fault

Sometimes when I read the Six Sentence Story prompt for the week, I struggle to think of a story.  Other times, something comes immediately to mind.  This week was one of the latter.  




"Say 'sorry' to your sister; you scratched her," said the aunt to her 3-year-old niece.  

The girl looked confused.  "I didn't scratch her," she responded, as she held up her hands and motioned as a cat might flex its claws. She started to walk away, then turned back.  With a long pause for dramatic effect that belied her years, she gave an explanation for her sister's tears.  

"I accidentally stepped on her foot."

  2. To cute, a typical sibling response, always so clever! I can remember telling my young son to stop jumping on the bed, with total sincerity he looked at me and said straight-faced, "I am not jumping, I am jogging." I tried hard not to laugh.

  3. it's always interesting to, on the basis of what a child might say, how the world must be for them. A little magic and certainly not as many abstract rules.

Ten Things of Thankful: Post-Thanksgiving Edition

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. I'll jump right in:

1. I'm thankful for cooperative return policies. Several weeks ago, I mentioned that I had to return a range that I had purchased, and I hoped that the particular range was just a lemon and that the replacement wouldn't have the same problem. Well, unfortunately, it did. On the bright side, the store quickly picked up the second range and refunded my money. I'm putting appliance purchases on the back burner (!) for the moment. 

2. I'm thankful for temples. I went one morning this week to the temple. I'm always amazed at how much insight comes in just an hour or two of reflection. 

3. I'm thankful for my sister. She and her family came to Utah to spend Thanksgiving with her in-laws, and I got a chance to see her and her family on Wednesday. The last time I saw her was in January at our grandma's 100th birthday celebration. We feel lucky to have two visits in one year! 

4. I'm thankful for my brother. …
