It {pays} to have a happy boy!

{quite literally!}

because we were down three kids with only the little ones at home, shawn & i decided to head on down to the picket fence for dinner. we sat in the back by an elderly couple who couldn't get enough of our happy little guy. they were so sweet, they chatted with us for the remainder of their dinner and enjoyed nolan's humor and curly hair. when they got up to leave they said their goodbyes and nolan noticed that the man was "holding her hand". it was cute...a very nice couple.

when we asked for our check we were surprised to find out that they had paid for our meal. crazy! i couldn't believe it...how nice was that!!!

we'll go back next week to see if they are there and thank them appropriately. it's heart warming to know that there are people in this world that are like that. i believe that there are more than we think.

i do believe that you reap what you sow. while we enjoy doing for others, it's often hard for us to accept help. someone once told me that those who serve others are blessed and by allowing others to do for us, we are allowing them the blessings that we enjoy.

i am grateful for the love and generosity of that couple and wish that i knew them.

How wonderful Julie! What a sweet couple. I hope that one day I will be able to afford to be able to do that for someone else! What a wonderful and lovingly kind gesture!
