Can I have . . .?

Yes, the cry of "Mom, can I have this?" can be heard in grocery stores all over the country. Today I had more then my share of hearing this.

Normally I do my grocery shopping while David is in school. Of course, since it's summer there is no school so I try to leave him at home with Dad. Since Rich works most days out of the house this works great for us. Rich opens the large picture window and keeps an eye out on David as he plays. Win-Win-Win!

Rich has been working out of the DC office three days this week and the other days his project has been all consuming so I didn't feel it was fair to have him watch David. So we headed to the grocery store right after his summer school class. Since his class is homebound I must be at home while he is being taught.

Can you spell TORTURE? If I wasn't hearing "Can I have these crab legs for a snack, they're ONLY $24.99." (Yes, he said only $24.99 for a snack! Bet you can guess the answer to that one) I was either watching out behind me to make sure I didn't get run over by David's grocery cart or having to tell him to catch up so I could actually put the groceries in the cart.

If the Geneva Convention ever allows torture I think this would be a good way to send a prisioner over the edge. I'm kidding, I'm kidding!

Hello Kim,

I pray you are having a wonderful Lord's day with your family. Your site has been a blessing to me in so many ways, thank you! =)

I thought id try to reach someone that could perhaps relay a message to Mrs. Wilt about the chat box on her blog. I cannot seem to send a message privately to you via e-mail so I hope you do not mind me leaving this message at your site. Please forgive me if this is not the best way to reach you. Please feel free to delete this message if you see it fitting to do so.

Sadly there has been some comments made in the chatter box that do not seem very loving towards Mrs. Wilt.

Im not sure if you could relay that message to her or not but thought id at least try. Most of us who regularly visit and comment on her site cetainly understand her abscense from it and we wish and pray for only the best for her and her family.

I thought it to be the right and loving thing to do to try at least to let someone who knows her in "real life" know.

God keep blessing you and your dear family! I apologize again for leaving this message on your comment site. I thank you for listening!

God bless!

Dear Joy,
I have not been to visit Kelli's but after reading your note I thought I would let her know at church last night. However, they have not been attending Sunday evening services and are not always there for Sunday morning or Wednesday night.
I had planned on calling her this morning, but after checking her site before placing the call I do not see the chat box. I think she must have already heard the concerns you are talking about.
