Today I stopped at Walmart to pick up a few things that were on my list. While I was there a lady about 10-15 years my senior came around the corner. When she saw us she smiled and our conversation went like this.
Lady: I love kids. Are they all yours?
Me: Yes (with a smile)
Lady: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. You are so blessed. You must be a great mom.
Me: Thank you, it is definitely an effort in patience.
Lady: You must be a very patient person.
Me: Actually, I'm not, that's why it's an effort, but I do love them all.
Lady: (said something I didn't get) then walked away. As she took a few steps, she suddenly turned and said I just have to give you a hug. Is that okay?
Me: Yes...Thank you.
