a random blessing
Tonight my wife and I celebrated our 7 year anniversary. We invited my parents to go to eat and then to the Mean Green basketball game with us and the kids. Dinner was great and my cousin, who also just graduated from UNT, was able to be our server and it was really nice seeing him. Wife and I are very blessed in that our children do behave very well in public places. Tonight was no exception and they were pretty quiet and did not misbehave. An older couple sitting beside us came up to wife and I during dinner and thanked us for our kid's behavior and they said that they were very impressed with how the 4 little ones acted. It was a great compliment and wife and I are very proud of our children. The greater compliment was that after the older woman finished speaking, her husband came over and handed me a $100 bill as a gift for the kid's savings. I couldn't believe it and I was very very humbled. What a random blessing from a very generous couple. Right after that, I turned to wife and said..."that's what we are going to do as soon as we can." I can't wait to have the financial freedom that we can give so unconditionally as that couple. There's no telling what their story is/was, but praise God for them and I pray that they will be blessed in return.
