Ha! I love it! I just heard the coolest Father talking to his son at the grocery store! The kid was discouraged about something and staring at the floor in front of the dairy section and the Father lifted his son’s chin with his finger, then grabbed both of his arms, got down on 1 knee, looked right in his son’s eyes, and said something like this…
“Son, it doesn’t matter! No excuses! If you want it then you go get it, end of story, period! There is nothing else to it! Nothing else matters, NOTHING! YOU WANT IT YOU GO GET IT! No excuses, no complaints, no whining! It’s all right there in front of you just waiting for you to come and take it! All you have to do is go and get it! It’s that simple son!”
What an amazing experience! I looked around to see if I was on the set of a movie, a hidden camera show or something! That stranger in the grocery store today not only inspired his son but he lifted me too! Thanks to him and his example I felt a strong desire to become a better, stronger, more inspiring & uplifting father! What an amazing man! I am sure that with the upbringing this young man is receiving that he will do something special in his life! Totally AWESOME Experience! I am so glad that I ran out of milk this morning!
