A Rare Ocassion

While running errands with Chloe the other day, we bought a few baby gifts at one store. The cashier asked Chloe: Is someone having a baby?
Chloe looked up at her and said: Yes, our next door neighbor is having a baby girl.
The cashier replied: Oh how wonderful. Well maybe soon you'll have someone to play with!

I couldn't stop myself from giggling. I said: Oh, she has plenty of playmates. She's one of eight.

The customer who was just leaving smiled at me and said: That is a gift from God. What a miracle!

Deadpan look from the cashier as she asked: You have eight children?

I said: Yes, I am really blessed.

Just then, a customer two places behind me peered her head out of the line and said: THAT'S RIGHT! I have five kids and they ARE a blessing!

That just made my day.

LOVE this!! I'm so glad you were able to be blessed by someone's comments, instead of criticized. Your children are such a you, and to others!
