Me and D headed to my mom and sissy poo’s for the shower they were throwing for me in Vegas last weekend. It was such an amazing turn out and I am so blessed to have these folks in my life. I am truly grateful for all the friends and family that came out or thought of us. Pics to be posted soon.
Anywho moving along, so I had to return some stuff at Walmart since there’s one near my work and I don’t know when I’ll be heading over there again (I’m more of a Target gal). I figured why not just use the credit to buy more diapers and wipes. I must admit, Walmart did have cheaper prices compared to Target, Amazon Mom & Babies “R” Us. So I piled up the cart with Pampers and wipes.
As I was pushing my cart up to my trunk. I saw this very young pregnant girl walking up towards me, I smiled at her since we both had matching bellies (Side note - this girl looked straight like a gypsy wanderer and not like a homeless person). Then she holds up this sign and holds out her hand. I am one those that never carries cash, it’s always plastic because I know cash will be gone the instant it’s in my hand so I told her that I didn’t have any dollars to spare. So she continues to point at my cart full of diapers and wipes and points at her belly. And so I said “NO, THANKS!” and went straight in my car.
I immediately felt guilty because I am fortunate enough to be able to get these things. So I called D because I was so sure Zeus would throw down a thunderbolt at me after what I just did. He reassured that there was nothing wrong with how I handled the situation. I am such a strong believer in karma that I thought that this incident would bite me in the ass someday. But then I sat in my car some more and thought about it…there is NOTHING wrong with what I just did. I deserve these darn diapers and wipes. After all that D and I have went through just to have this little girl. These dang diapers are owed to me. This young gypsy girl probably got knocked up by someone just looking at her!! Ugh! The nerve of some people! Besides there are shelters for women like her and help from the state if she utilizes those resources.
My sister put it in perfect terms - “Nik, I think God will let this one slide…” LOL! Happy hump day folks!
