Stupidly, I allowed Charlotte to play with my beaded necklace. Oops, it broke, of course.
"I'm sad that you broke my necklace"
"That's the way life is sometimes."
I was not angry. And then, her words of wisdom sunk into my head. It is good that I was not angry because it is only a necklace and I actually was dumb enough to let it be a play toy.
