    >> For all the grandfathers out there. This is an awesome story from a
    >> proud grandfather. You'll probably cry at the end.
    >>
    >> Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant.
    >>
    >> My six-year-old grandson asked if he could say grace.
    >>
    >> As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you
    >> for the food,
    >> and I would even thank you more
    >> if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert.
    >> And liberty and justice for all! Amen!"
    >>
    >> Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby,
    >> I heard a woman remark,
    >> "That's what's wrong with this country.
    >> Kids today don't even know how to pray.
    >> Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"
    >>
    >> Hearing this, my grand-son burst into tears and asked me,
    >> "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"
    >>
    >> As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and
    >> God was certainly not mad at him,
    >> an elderly gentleman approached the table.
    >>
    >> He winked at my grand-son and said,
    >> "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer."
    >>
    >> "Really?" my grand-son asked.
    >>
    >> "Cross my heart," the man replied.
    >>
    >> Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added
    >> (indicating the woman whose remark
    >> had started this whole thing),
    >>
    >> "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream.
    >> A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."
    >>
    >> Naturally, I bought my grand-children ice cream at the end of the
    >> meal.
    >> My grand-son stared at his for a moment,
    >> and then did something I will remember the
    >> rest of my life.
    >>
    >> He picked up his sundae and, without a word,
    >> walked over and placed it in front of the woman.
    >>
    >> With a big smile he told her,
    >>
    >> "Here, this is for you.
    >> Shove it up your ass you grouchy old bitch! "
    >>
    >> Touches the heart doesn't it?
