This past weekend we were able to visit with some good friends from CA. They were visiting a church nearby us to lead worship at a conference and we went to see them and then spend the afternoon with them. They blessed us greatly by taking all seven of us out to eat at Olive Garden. (Mmmmm....bread sticks)
When it came time to order, our six year old daughter, Layla, was all prepared to order for herself. The waiter asked her what she wanted and she remarked, "Chicken strips." The waiter said, "Ok, and french fries." The kids meals came with an option of french fries or broccoli.
Layla looked up and said quickly, "No, broccoli."
He stared at her a minute and then asked, "Are you serious?"
We laughed and she said, "Yes."
The waiter smiled and said, "That's a first. Good job."
That's something to make a mama smile.
