Today I acted like a small child. . I wanted something… and couldn’t have it. I could feel the feeling brewing… and I really struggled to repress the childish behaviour.
Awful. I did not like the feeling.
I had to distract myself. Took myself away from the situation and escorted Willy to buy the ingredients for his school ‘Bake off Cake’. His innocence and excitement for his design bringing joy back into my head and heart rather than disgust.
He also taught me a lesson. He had brought his wallet, stuffed with all his pocket money and birthday money that he has been saving for several months.
He taught me patience. I can have what I want. I just need to apply the simple, childlike logic – to save up my pennies. The longer the wait, the sweeter the delight.
