    Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant.

    My six-year-old grand-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 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! "



    Kinda brings a tear to yer eye!

    LOL, but the real ending was: "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.""

    We have a witness to the event? Heck, I didn't know this really happened, I thought it was a joke. Funny one too.

    Ice Cream probably wouldn't help the Grouchy old Bat.

    Good Story

    If I ever meet your grandson---I think I'll buy him a Banana Split and tell him "GOD" sent it special delivery. The youngster deserves it.
