Story time...

Read to the end

KURTIS THE STOCK BOY

AND

BRENDA THE CHECKOUT GIRL



In a supermarket, Kurtis the stock boy, was busily working when a new voice

came over the loud speaker asking for a carry out at register 4. Kurtis was

almost finished, and wanted to get some fresh air, and decided to answer the

call. As he approached the check-out stand a distant smile caught his eye, the

new check-out girl was beautiful. She was an older woman (maybe 26, and he was

only 22) and he fell in love.



Later that day, after his shift was over, he waited by the punch clock to find

out her name. She came into the break room, smiled softly at him, took her card

and punched out, then left. He looked at her card, BRENDA. He walked out only

to see her star t walking up the road. Next day, he waited outside as she left

the supermarket, and offered her a ride home. He looked harmless enough, and she

accepted. When he dropped her off, he asked if maybe he could see her again,

outside of work. She simply said it wasn't possible.



He pressed and she explained she had two children and she couldn't afford a

baby-sitter, so he offered to pay for the baby-sitter. Reluctantly she accepted

his offer for a date for the following Saturday. That Saturday night he arrived

at her door only to have her tell him that she was unable to go with him. The

baby-sitter had called and canceled. To which Kurtis simply said, "Well,

let's take the kids with us."



She tried to explain that taking the children was not an option, but again not

taking no for an answer, he pressed. Finally Brenda, brought him inside to meet

her children. She had an older daughter who was just as cute as a bug, Kurtis

thought, then Brenda brought out her son, in a wheelchair. He was born a

paraplegic with Down Syndrome.



Kurtis asked Brenda, "I still don't understand why the kids can't

come with us?" Brenda was amazed. Most men would run away from a woman

with two kids, especially if one had disabilities - just like her first husband

and father of her children had done. Kurtis was not ordinary - - - he had a

different mindset.



That evening Kurtis and Brenda loaded up the kids, went to dinner and the

movies. When her son needed anything Kurtis would take care of him. When he

needed to use the restroom, he picked him up out of his wheelchair, took him and

brought him back. The kids loved Kurtis. At the end of the evening, Brenda

knew this was the man she was going to marry a nd spend the rest of her life

with.



A year later, they were married and Kurtis adopted both of her children.

Since then they have added five more kids.



So what happened to Kurtis the stock boy and Brenda the check-out girl? Well,

Mr. & Mrs. Kurt Warner now live in Arizona , where he is currently employed

as the quarterback of the National Football League Arizona Cardinals and has his

Cardinals are in the Super Bowl. Is this a surprise ending or could you have guessed

that he was not an ordinary person.



It should be noted that he also quarterbacked the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI.

He has also been the NLF's Most Valuable Player twice and the Super Bowl's Most Valuable Player.

I have always liked Kurt Warner for many reasons. I got to meet him when my mom was in the hospital and he sat and talked with me for more than 10 minutes about keeping my faith and that my mom was being taken care of by a great God. He is a great man and someone that kids can look up to.
