"They ALLOW That?!!!!"

After home school yesterday...

I headed to the store. My cart has me feeling a little like a hippy (thanks M for sticking that word in my head...laughing). I can't seem to remember everything with this wild gluten free thinking (even with a list). Someday maybe I can obtain gluten free greatness!!!

Yet at least this was somewhat of a normal trip. You see, the grocery store is a notorious spot for odd incidents. We've had many... and very little surprises us.

Until the other day....

Actual conversation with an older woman at Wal-Mart (all kids with me)...
Woman: "You out with your whole school?"
Me: "Nope! (said with a smile) They are all mine!"
Woman: "How many kids do you have?"
Me: "Ten, one in Heaven..."
Woman: "They ALLOW that?!!"
Me: "Yes"
Woman: "No, they ALLOW that???" ( Like I must have misheard her)
Me: "Yes"
Woman: "The COURTS allow that?!!! Those two (pointing to a couple of the kids) are YOURS, right?!"
Me: "They're all mine. I'm very blessed."
Woman: "Well, uhhh" (Woman is irritated here because I won't answer her about which children are bio).

We left around that point, with a smile and Sarah's, "Have a nice day!"

I must admit, Sarah and I rounded the corner of the next aisle and started laughing. We looked at each other and mouthed, "Did she REALLY just say that?!!!"

Unfortunately, we've realized that some don't look in the beautiful liquid depths of our children's eyes. Some just see a number. It's their loss.

The whole time I just had shock running through my head (and laughter).

Life is always and adventure here.  A wonderful, blessed, and crazy fun adventure!

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
