What do you inspire in your kids?
February 14, 2017

Who can resist a store closing sale? Well, me. I can! But Darrell? Not usually. So there we were, in line at a checkout counter with dozens of other people who apparently had the same weakness. That’s when it happened. Two adults not-so-subtly encouraging their little girl to take a spot at the front of the line.

They joined her a moment or two later and paid for their purchases ahead of the rest of us.

We paused our knee-jerk “you have to be kidding” reactions long enough to realize that little girl’s going to pay for what happened for a long time.

No one said a word about it, including us. Minding our own business the way we did may or may not have been the right thing to do, but I still ache for that kid.
