Today I had to do something I haven't really ever done before. Little Bit received an email this weekend from some "friends". Unsolicited email stating that they had saw her play and that she stunk in it, made their eyes burn, she was brace face, yada yada yada. Well, I know the mom of the one girl so I called her today to see if I could talk to her. She was eager to talk to me as well, but concerned since this isn't really a person I call on a regular basis. So I met with her, she happens to be a teacher, thankfully not at the school Little Bit is at, that would have been awkward. I went in with an open mind, really I did. I didn't want to go in there thinking that my child was perfect and could not possibly have done anything to cause this email to happen. So I expressed this to her, told her what I knew and ask for her opinion and suggestions as well. She received this all very well, I also showed her a copy of the email. She was so great, she hugged me, apologized, thanked me and expressed a desire to get our girls together so they could work out this "issue". I was so grateful, I had prayed last night and this morning that all would go well. I just didn't know how to go about it. But I thought, if Little Bit did this, I would want to know. So I hope that I can be as receptive as she was to me. Thank you for answered prayer.
