One little girl learns the true meaning of delete

For little children, it is the small things in life that can completely destroy their day. When one little girl deletes a picture on the camera, tears quickly come. It can break our heart to see children cry over the smallest details but do we often find ourselves doing the same thing? Has your mood ever quickly changed because your favorite pair of pants are too tight and you're mad at yourself for putting on a few extra pounds? Do you find that you quickly lose patience when your child constantly whines? Or, do the tears start to come ...
