28. Practice, Patience, and Letting Go
Mikey hugged Sheila and said, "C'mon, let's see if the little villain wants to go for ice cream." 
Sheila held Mikey for a moment before she said, "You're getting better." 
"I don't feel better," Mikey said.
"You used to get so upset with your dad. You'd call him back and argue with him all night. Now you take the hit and move on. You're getting better at letting it go."
"I've had a lot of practice. I'm learning patience."
"That's all anyone can ask of themselves. Practice letting go, and have patience with your progress, Mikey. Practice and patience."
Today I will remember letting go often takes practice and patience.
