A lesson in compassion the best and worst parts of family life

by Tawnya

The best moment I've experienced in family life is when I saw how compassionate my children are. My 7yr old daughter was placed in time out because she wouldn't stop kicking her brothers toy car. so when she was placed in time out she started to cry and our three yr old walks over and rubs her hand and says to her "Don't cry Angel, I'll sit with you" My eyes welled up with tears because here was my three yr old willingly sitting with his sister who was being punished and he was not moving until she was out of the corner.

When her time out was over i took them both for ice cream and i will never forget how it was I who learned a lesson taught by my 3 yr old. Now the worst part of family life is when you lose a child to death and you have to watch your children morn over their sibling. This is what happened to my family when our son Macaiah and Jeremiah passed away within a year of each other. our older children who were preteens at the time leaned on each other and cried and as a mother I felt helpless but also so very proud that they felt that they could be there for one another.
