The Trip

The other day Baby and I went to the store. I tend to park away from other vehicles, so if I need to do a diaper change or deal with any upset, I can do so in privacy. Just as I parked, ‘vroom’ a car pulls in right next to me. I get out, go to the passenger side, where Baby sits and proceed to get her unbuckled and ready for the trip.

The person in the car waits and watches me, and finally gets out. It’s a very large man with a ‘scowly’ looking face. I thought.. oh he’s going to make a comment or a huff as he goes by. He gets closer and seeing me attending to Baby gets this HUGE smile on his face and says….” Oh!! I see your doing GOD’S work! Very Good !!” That just made me feel so good.
