I was tired after stressful days at the hospital. It was dinner time. And Lil D was throwing a tantrum. I snapped. There was a scene, following which we both retired, angry, upset, hurt, and in tears.
About ten minutes later, Lil D quietly approached me, and left a folded piece of paper on my laptop. I waited till she left the room before I opened it.
A big red coloured heart, a little flower, and… “I love you no matter what”.
An echo of exactly what I say to her.
Words count. Every one of them.
