At the end of the week, I felt more confused and discouraged about her hair than I did at the beginning of the week.
Then, at church of all places, I get a comment from a woman about Lidiyanna's hair that really made me feel even more insecure. It really irritated me and of all weeks to hear this! It seemed like really bad timing.
Here's how much my Savior loves me. Here's how much He cares about even the little, insignificant details like my daughter's hair and my hurt feelings. I'm at church today, and I see the woman. Oh, great! What is she going to think about Lidiyanna's hair today, I think.
Well, she comes up to me, puts her hand on my shoulder, looks me in the eyes and apologizes. She said God laid it on her heart that she should not have made that comment to me, and she never wanted to offend me. She kept saying how sorry she was, and I looked back into her brown eyes and knew she was sincere.
As Tim and I were walking away, he asked me who had told her that it hurt my feelings. What made her apologize? The God of the universe who is saving souls, caring for orphans, speaking through missionaries, and changing lives knows the private things of one mama's heart. He cares and He watches out for me!
