The Comment Of The Day
I was dropping off my triplets at "moms morning out" which is held at our church and as I was leaving a gentleman stopped and said, "Are you the mom with the triplets"? I said yes (thinking inside...oh here we go again..prepare for a comment). He says, "thank you for having lots of kids, our population is decreasing and it is a good thing to have kids". I was like...wow ok well you are welcome and thanks for the kind words. This man is a grandpa and he has 2 grand kids that go to this program. I thought about his comments all week and this week I stopped him and said, "I just wanted to say thanks for your comments last week...you made my week". He of course smiled and I had to further explain that not everyone gives the same comments, looks or thoughts. It was very refreshing to talk to someone who had raised his kids, now helping with the grand kids and truly loving every minute of it. He ended with, "isn't this what life is all about". He mentioned that I should enjoy it now because it took him till his grand kids to really really understand what a blessing kids are. Hummm something to ponder.
