    (This is for all the grandfathers out there.)

    Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant.​
    My six year old grandson asked if he could say 'grace.'

    As we bowed our heads he said, ​
    "God is great, God is good and we thank you for this food,​
    and I would thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert.
    With liberty and justice for all. Amen!"

    Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, ​
    I heard a woman remark, ​
    "That's what's wrong with this country. ​
    Kids today don't even know how to pray. ​
    Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"

    Hearing this, my grandson burst into tears and asked me, ​
    "Did I say something wrong, grandpa? ​
    Is God mad at me?"

    As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, ​
    and God was certainly not mad at him, ​
    an elderly gentleman approached the table.

    He winked at my grandson and said, ​
    "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer."

    "Really?" my grandson asked.

    "Cross my heart," the man replied.

    Then, in a theatrical whisper, ​
    he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), ​
    "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. ​
    A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

    Naturally, I bought my grandchildren ice cream at the end of the meal. ​
    My grandson stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life.

    He picked up his sundae and, without a word, ​
    walked over and placed it in front of the woman. ​
    With a big smile he said, ​
    "Here, this is for you. ​
    Now, shove it up your _ss you grouchy old b__ch!" ​
