I just wanted to post this because I wanted people to know what a wonderful daughter I have.
Today I left work early and was getting a lift home from a friend, on the way home we passed my daughter's school and seeing everyone leaving my
friend asked if we should stop to give my daughter a lift home too.
I replied no because she gets the bus and she would already be on her way home by then.
A minute later I looked out of the car and saw her walking along. Surprised to see her I pointed her out to my friend who offered to stop and pick
her up. We pulled over just around the corner and I jumped out to cross the road and let her know where we were.
As she and I walked back to the car I questioned her as to why she would be walking, if she had perhaps spent her bus money on a treat at lunchtime or
anything. The reply she gave made my heart melt and is just a beautiful example of how wonderful she is in her everyday thoughts and actions.
Because she was caught red-handed she told me the reason why. She has been walking home for the past week and a bit in order to save up her daily 40p
bus fare so she could personally buy me a present for my upcoming birthday in a few weeks.
Today I received a lesson in humility. I am truly blessed. She makes me this: happy!
