You know the saying, "fight fire with fire?" Well, one Texas mother decided to go beyond that to teach her daughter a beautiful life lesson. On her Facebook page, Holly Wright explained that the situation started when her daughter hopped off the school bus crying, visibly embarrassed after being scorned by the bus driver in front of all the other students.

Wright's daughter, 14-year-old Lexi, said the driver called her out because she was sitting on her knees braiding another student's hair. And while Wright says that the reaction was over the top, she did explain to Lexi why that was dangerous. So, Wright and her daughter decided to go fight the driver's anger with compassion: they baked her cookies!

That's right. The mother-daughter duo fought back by killing the driver with kindness. Wright reported that the driver was so taken aback by the act, she sat in disbelief. To know what she said to Lexi when she finally caught her breath, read Wright's original Facebook post below.

Wright's Facebook post is transcribed below: 

When your daughter gets off the bus, embarrassed and in tears... As a mother, it is considered "normal" for me to want to protect her and come to her defense. Although, I am a woman who is led by the Holy Spirit, and peace, love and grace is what invades my heart. 
Lexi (who is 14 years old) explained to me how the bus driver stopped the bus in the middle of her route and yelled at her for ten minutes in front of all the kids because she was sitting on her knees and braiding her friends hair.
The angry woman kept tearing Lexi down with words and her delivery was completely uncalled for.

After Lexi calmed down and we discussed the dangers of sitting on her knees, I asked my daughter a question:
"Lexi, want to do something radical?"
"Sure!" Lexi replied. 
"How about you respond to your bus driver in LOVE because she clearly is lacking it! All she knows is anger and frustration. How about tomorrow morning you present her with freshly baked cookies and a hug! 
You and I both know that she doesn't "deserve" it. If anything, she owes you an apology. But after all, isn't that what GRACE is all about?"
My precious daughter quickly replied, "Can we bake the cookies now?"
That next morning when Lexi handed her bus driver those cookies, the woman sat there in disbelief because she knew in her heart of heart's that she over reacted in pure anger and foolishness. Yet Lexi humbly came to her, in love. 
Trust me when I say, those "cookies" spoke a million words in Lexi's defense!
The bus driver asked Lexi, "Can I have a hug too?" ... And just like that, PEACE entered in!

Proverbs 25:21-22
"If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals (of conviction) on his head, and the LORD will reward you."
