A Beautiful Story ~Read to the end!!

I found this story from a lady online. It made me cry and I just had to share it with you. Whether or not you are watching the Superbowl tomorrow, you should get in the spirit by reading the following:


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 start 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 and 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 two 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 in the hunt for a Super Bowl win. Is this a surprise ending or could you have guessed that he was not an ordinary person.

It should be noted that he also quarter backed 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.





AND THE REST OF THE STORY:



Today at church our minister mentioned that when Kurt, his wife and 7
children go out to eat he has one of his children pick out a family
eating at the restaurant. Kurt then tells the wait staff he is
picking up the tab for that family's dinner anonimously. He remembers the
days he was working nights in the grocery store and feeding his family
on food stamps.


**It makes it kind of hard to not Root For the AZ CARDINALS doesn't It??
How many quarterbacks are that special and have that much heart?

GO CARDINALS GO CARDINALS GO CARDINALS GO CARDINALS GO CARDINALS GO CARDINALS

Definitely did not expect that ending! Cool story.
Of course, as much as the story endears one to liking the Warner family, I've been a life-long Steelers fan!
