Most Recent Trip to Winco

As we shopped in the bulk section of the local grocery store here called Winco, my kids are always (almost) eager to help with the scooping and pulling of handles.  I usually have them write the code and then twist tie the bag of goods I get.  This one time, last Thursday (Oct. 27th, 11), my littlest one who is 5 yrs old blurts out “how may I help?”.  The lady next to us says, “Man, if I can get my kids to say something like that.”  My other daughter (7) chimes in and replies, “You have to teach them, and train them. That’s what my mom did.”   Awwwwhh-some! (<–in a high opera voice)

Parenting takes a lot of prayer- energy, work, commitment, persistence, diligence …  This is not an exhaustive list, as parenting is an inexhaustive  (and sometimes exhausting) journey of ups and downs, joys and sorrows.  May God grant us grace and wisdom in this worthy and highly honorable pursuit.
