Just a Chip

About a month ago  we were all in the kitchen getting breakfast organised. 

We tend to get our own breakfast, then sit together at the table to eat.

While my daughter was getting something out the high cupboard, she knocked something, which dropped down onto a cake stand (which I really loved).  There was a shock on her face, and panic in her voice as she said "I'm really sorry Mum, I've chipped your plate". 

This was probably the best thing she could have said - it removed any anger, or upset feelings I may otherwise have had - I could not stop laughing as I looked at the "chipped" plate.

She was really upset, but even now I think the memories and the laugh over the "chipped plate" have given far more pleasure than the plate ever did.
