“You’re a sweet kid, but don’t press your luck.” Scrooge McDuck
There are limits, even for a cute kid with a big smile that is pushing the limits of our patience.
Anyone that’s had a toddler knows the feeling of locking themselves in the bathroom for a few seconds of rest and respite. All special needs parents have been exhausted and frustrated and to the breaking point. Those who have cared for an elderly relative operate from love and obligation and sometimes just crave a break.
Get some respite.
Walk away for a moment.
Pause and breathe.
Love is our most precious treasure, but the greatest fortune can be wiped out in an instant of anger.
