Mom, I'm hungry. May I get something from the confession stand?

Last week after showing houses all day, I sped home for a little league baseball game. Poor Little Man had anKeller Houses For Sale error -- a hole between his legs. Yip. A baseball went straight through 'em. He made up for it in the games to follow with good throws from the outfield and great hits at bat, several doubles and RBIs, but that error outfield caused some stir by Dad and Sister.

Next game, Sister sitting in Mom's lap, Mom said, "Say a prayer real quick that Brother does well today -- no errors." Sister quickly put her hands together and dramatically prayed, "Dear God, please let Brother have another goofy play today!"

We laughed. And then the game started. Talked to another Dad beside me about houses in Keller and then Little Man was at bat. Wouldn't you know it? He got hit with the pitch! Dads around very impressed he didn't wine or rub it, just ran to first. Sister looked at me with big eyes and WoW face full of "I'm a believer." Shameful believer! She believed her prayer caused this and she felt for Brother. I teased her saying that bruise he has will probably have her name on it! She went over to see if Brother was ok, and to tell him sorry she said that prayer! I could see Brother laughing about that from the dugout...

She came back and said, "Mom, I'm hungry. Can I have something to eat from the confession stand?"

Well. Sure. The confession stand is full of surprises today. Perhaps food and faith are both served.

Happy Sunday!

In years bygone I have dealt with an agent or two who could have benefited from the confession stand.  This was many moons ago.  The first occasion was in 1981 and the last one was in 1987.  The first one's behavior was unethical and the second was just extremely poor customer service.

Roger - Two in all that time, huh? I would say you have a great record for attracting good people or ignoring the bad. Thanks for the comment!

The confession stand  . . . too cute. What a pleasant Sunday read.  The confession stand can be good "food" for the soul! ;-)
