Be kind in your offerings….
Sometimes there is no amount of reframing that you can do to redirect the way things are going. We can laugh about it now, but it wasn’t so funny at the time. A shopping trip was quickly arranged. The stores he insisted on going to did not have the item he desperately wanted on the floor – prebuilt. He wants the machine assembled and ready to fire up and get things going (even with 10 inches of snow on the ground). Plans were made to try again next weekend when things weren’t so busy here at the house. He agreed and added that he was bringing home a few extras as well.
