Are you thinking of the 1994 Allan Jackson song?
(I admit I did love that song)
So, Do you think there really are Angels among us?
Saturday wasn’t the easiest day with my children.
I did get a few hours away to go to a friend’s bridal shower, but I felt like until the minute I left and the minute I got back, it was just crazy.
We were about to run out of milk and coffee creamer
(a true nutritional emergency),
so in all my brilliance I decided to take all three kiddos to “The Teeter”.
Do you see where this is headed?
Usually our trips to the grocery (even with 3 kids)
are actually a fun outing….for both me and them.
Have you read about my love affair with Harris Teeter?
Well, Saturday was a little different. They did not have my super deluxe 2 seater cart. So we braved the masses (there were a crazy amount of people grocery shopping on a Saturday afternoon)
We had more than a few moments of disobedience, whining, firm correction, and perhaps a few toddler lives were threatened.
But as I was in line checking out…
She walked up to me.
I had seen her a few times in the store throwing a glance my way.
Of course I was convinced she was judging my poor parenting
Judging my poorly behaved children.
I prayed she would not be the 10th person to tell me
“my, you’ve got your hands full”
But she walked up to me….walked around people in line to get to me.
Placed her arm on my shoulder and said
”You are a good mom…
I just wanted to tell you that”
And I fought tearing up,
because there is nothing worse then crying at the grocery store.
But I needed to hear that…
even if it was from a stranger…
or perhaps from an angel.
So, yes…. In moments like those…
I do believe there are Angels Among us.
