Today, I recieved a phone call from Kaitlyn's best friends mom. She told me that Kaitlyn's friend had told her Kaitlyn has said somethings that really hurt her feelings and that she didn't think Kaitlyn didn't want to be her friend anymore.
So, I chatted with Kaitlyn about it after school today. Kaitlyn doesn't remeber saying those things to her, but instantly wanted to call and apologize. She felt really bad that her friend's feelings were hurt. I told her that she needs to watch the words she is using. She doesn't deliberatly try to hurt people's feelings, but sometimes words just come out wrong.
Well, she called her friend and now all is right in the world. Kaitlyn said she was really sorry, her friend instantly forgave her. Now they are trying to plan playdates :0)
It makes me feel pretty good knowing that Aaron and I have raised our daughter to apologize when she has wronged somebody, and that she chooses good friends that will forgive instead of holding grudges....
Now if in Jr. High it will work like this, well that's a whole nother story I guess :0)
