Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

A Day at Work with Dad

Saturday my oldest daughter went to help her Dad with our new little business that we purchased. We had her start learning how to take orders and count change back to customers.(Something that I think very few people know how to do) I went down there for awhile with the other children and let them play while I helped Dad and big sis. At one time a man came to place an order for himself and his two boys. I asked him very nicely if he had ordered two smalls and one large. He looked at me with that look like well didn't you hear me the first time. I was asking so I could help my daughter add up the order the right way. We proceeded to count back his change and he proceeded to be not very kind. I didn't say anything to my daughter but thought how said it is to see someone who is so unhappy. His boys were trying to talk to him and all he could do was grumble back. As he was walking away with his order a big gust of wind came up and knocked it over. (I thought serves him right) which is not very Christ like. But of course my husband being the kind hearted man he is made him a new order without even thinking twice. This is exactly why I stay home and do not work in the world. I believe that women are to emotional to deal with the unkind people of the world.
This blog went a totally different way than I had planned. Sorry

Hmmmm....Yes, we women can be emotional but...when it comes to dealing with rude people the key is to kill them with kindness, be the bigger person...whether you are a man or a woman in the working world....but I do think that some people (man or woman) are not able to deal with the public face to face... =)
