What is it about Walmart anyway?

Dear young couple with no kids that I passed in Walmart,

I would just like to inform that you really need to work on your stealth skills. Don't you know that when you stare at someone as you walk by, especially if you're not smiling at all, that the person being stared at will glance back at you to see if you are still staring?

Next time, try not to turn to each other and whisper while pointing at me until I am able to push my cart containing my four kids out of the line of sight.

Know that I don't mind the staring, I've grown accustomed to that. But I find the whispering and pointing somewhat unnerving because I have no idea what you're saying.

Signed sincerely,
Just thought I should let you know

Where are all the people who smile at mom's with lots of kids? Oh, is that just we of the large families who know the true joy?

While you are enjoying the blessing of "joy and rejoicing" in your posterity...they who "chose" the way of the world...will have missed the GREATEST ADVENTURE..."LIFE/CHARACTER CHANGING"...opportunity...that children naturally bring on in your life...I found...it was the "older" generation...that would SMILE...and "remember when"...when they saw our family of "8" children...They seemed to understand...that when one grows OLD...it is "FAMILY" memories...that they relive over and over again...It is what often "defines" one's "meaning" in life...Again...I am talking about those who CHOSE NOT to bring children...Those who DESIRE DEEPLY for a child...will at least be blessed with a "quiver" in their "eternal life" experience...
Those who CHOSE not to in this life...most likely forfeit...that blessing forever...

Why don't you walk up to them and say, "Excuse me, I couldn't quite hear what you were saying"? Then ask, "How many children do you have? I am number four out of the eight children my parents had. Aren't large families great?
