    This is a good story my dad just sent me:


    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

    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 possible appearance 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.
