A woman in a supermarket has been walking behind a grandfather and his badly-behaved,
3-year-old grandson. It's obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child
screaming for sweets in the sweet aisle, cookies in the cookie aisle, and for fruit,
cereal and soda in the other aisles.
Meanwhile, Granddad is working his way around, saying in a controlled voice, "Easy,
William, we won't be long, easy, boy."
Another outburst, and she hears the granddad calmly say, "It's okay, William, just a
couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in there, boy."
At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and Granddad says
again in a controlled voice, "William, William, relax buddy, don't get upset. We'll
be home in five minutes; stay cool, William."
Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his groceries and
the boy into the car. She said to the elderly gentleman, "It's none of my business,
but you were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time, you kept
your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just calmly kept saying
things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you as his grandpa."
"Thanks," said the grandfather, "but I'M William ... the little brat's
name is Kevin."

This cracked me up when I read it. Haven't we all had days like this? Maybe we were the one whining & complaining. But our gracious God keeps His cool with us and loves us no matter what.
Enjoy your day!
