We had just come from a soccer game.
I had 2 shopping carts and 4 kids.
David showed up about 10 minutes in and saved me from shopping alone.
(But not before he hid in the produce to take these pictures ha!)
The kids were actually well behaved on this trip, but I suppose we were still a sight to see.
Twice that night, we received less than encouraging remarks from strangers.
Dude...why are strangers so hostile?
One lady told us we should stop having kids :)
Um. Noted. Thanks.
I was feeling a bit discouraged...maybe embarrassed.
I guess I care what strangers think, dang it.
The resolution to this internal conflict came just a few days later.
I listened to President Monson's retelling of The Mansion during the Christmas Devotional.
(if you want to hear the story click here, it begins at minute 5:20)
Why is this message so easy to forget?
I don't know. But how blessed I feel for the reminder.
I say to myself,
"Will you be paid twice?"
