A Little Ice Cream
==================

Last week I took my children to a restaurant.

My six-year-old son 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 Mom 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 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 son and said, "I happen to know that God thought
that was a great prayer."

"Really?" my 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 kids ice cream at the end of the meal.
My 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. Ice cream is good for the soul
sometimes, and my soul is good already."

Don't be afraid to ask for a little ice cream in life.
