We are not supposed to embark on winning others by judgment. That woman obviously had issues of her own that spawned her judgement of you. If I wanted to invite you to church I first wouldn't assume you didn't already have one. I would have said something like "your children are beautiful, and you look like your glowing, I know your exhausted, hey I don't know if you already have a church, but if you ever need a break our church has a great nursery with some amazing strong moms like yourself, feel free to drop in if you like, and even though it's just an hour or so, it could give you a breather."

You wouldn't invite someone to a birthday party by first insulting them, why on earth would that woman have thought her small minded, personal, absolutely presumed, brash judgemental viewpoint of you would have even come close to making you feel invited and welcome. Sheesh the proud cruel nature of the human heart never ceases to amaze me.

As far as the cashier goes... I would have had some tactful words for her and her manager.

I am so sorry mama ((hugs))
love what you said willow and I'm there with you.. I feel embarrassed that she gave me a bad name as a Christian.

I've been on WIC before and somehow cashiers always find a way to embarrass you.. I don't know where people come off making a judgment like that??

Oh that was so rude. I used to work in a grocery store and unfortunately saw stuff like that happen quite a bit. I always went out of my way to help those mamas with their hands full and lets just say the nasty customers might have gotten their eggs and bread packed on the bottom underneath the canned goods :P I once took my 2 yr old nephew to the store when I was about 17 and had an older lady and her husband stop to lecture me on how I ought to have "kept my legs crossed" I'm not a violent person but sometimes you just wanna smack those people. Whatever happened to "judge not lest ye be judged" ? Something we all need to remember (me too sometimes )

That whole situation is garbage but I HATE people like this. It's so stinkin unchristian. Even if you were unmarried and had 25 kids who were all screaming bloody murder God would love every smidgen of you. There would be nothing in that equation that would need "forgiving"
Mightier then thou people suck.

Sounds like idiocy was running rampant there I'd call about the comments from the cashier, beyond uncalled for, honestly I don't even have words for how incredibly stupid that was. More , nobody deserves to be treated that way.

Oh wow that is totally uncalled for on that woman's part. I am glad you mentioned the swollen finger thing. I think most women especially towards end can't wear their wedding rings and for most it probably bothers them.
Don't let her get to ya!

--what a complete fool. I am shocked at what people think they have the right to put out there. She was a very ignorant, arrogant person. Try to put that in perspective. This incident was a reflection of her, not you.
