Today was our final day of Christmas shopping. I had to go to quit a few different stores and knew it was going to be a long day. As we were driving into Omaha I just kept telling myself to be patient and remember they are kids and they are not going to be perfect.
I don't know what happened today but they all obeyed. Not just one or two but all six of them were obedient. Four different stores and one hour in the car each way, now that is a miracle.
Our final stop is every one's favorite store Zooper Wal-Mart. (Just joking.) We have nicknamed this particular store as you can see Zooper Wal-mart. It is always a madhouse and by the time we are finished I always want to pull my hair out. But not today. We had a great time shopping for Daddy and buying all the ingredients for our Christmas dinner. It was a moment to stop and Thank God for how blessed I am.
As we were checking out the cashier was a young lady who looked to be about 18-20 years old. My 7 year old pulled the empty cart around and started loading up the groceries while the older girls helped the little ones put on their jackets.
This young lady looked at me and said, "I hope I have kids like that some day."
I sit here tonight and think I did not say anything special or remarkable I just said, "I guess they just know the routine."
Well the hard work of training up your children to love the Lord, and Glorify Him in everything they do is starting to bear fruit.
Today was a great and glorious day!!!!
