My youngest man-child who is 7, worried me so much about his broken car pillow.
When it first broke he said to me, “Mama, I must throw away my car because it is broken“.
I replied, ” Why don’t you fix it?”
To which he replied, “How?”
This became our teaching moment for the week. This is the week that he learned three lessons.
1. When things break we should try to fix them.
2. Even if at first we don’t know how, we should try to learn.
3. The basics of sewing.
The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute. Proverbs 12:24
Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest. Ecclesiastes 9:10
There is nothing better for a man, than that he should eat and drink, and that he should make his soul enjoy good in his labour. This also I saw, that it was from the hand of God. Ecclesiastes 2:24
He was so pleased with his work and I was pleased with him!!
