If you have a lot of kids, you are probably self-conscious of the negativity toward large families. We get our share of scowls and frowns from people who think we’re over populating the earth or draining society’s resources. Even though we reason and write books that show the immense blessing of children, such encounters are discouraging.
But then you get an anonymous note like this one. Someone noticed our family in the supermarket (we’re tough to miss). They connected with us, but probably thought it would be strange or a hassle to say hi. So, they tore a piece of paper bag from their groceries, wrote this nice note, and placed it under our windshield wiper when we weren’t looking.
Wow, that totally made our day. Whoever it was, that was one of the kindest gestures ever.
Share this with a parent who could use some encouragement. That’d be a very nice gesture.
