Just a little humorous one.
My father is in the Foreign Missions Board of the UPCI. He has about 4 meetings that he attends a year, well use to attend. He was put on the Board about 22years ago.
I always picked up my parents from the airport we they came home from meetings, General conferences, etc. One day when I pick them up, he was telling me that all the men were talking about their children. One minister said he had a single son and my dad said that he had a single daughter (this was before I had even met Scott). When my dad said that I was single, the other minister asked what I looked like. My dad’s reply was “They say she looks just like me.” When my dad said that, I almost started crying. They’re reply to that was “How very unfortunate for the poor girl.” Then I really wanted to cry. lol
Later I met most of the ministers at General Conference. I will never forget when I met Bro. Vor Shoemake. He held my hand and looked deep into my eyes and said “Why you ARE a pretty thing, you don’t look nothing like your dad.” I really wanted to hug and kiss him. He was so sweet to say that, especially when I know I am the spitting image of him. (Only I pull it off better… lol) We had a great laugh.
About 3-4 years later, I was pumping gas at Sunmart, around 10 pm at night. I am standing on one side of the aisle and a gentleman on the other. (minding my own business….) The gentleman asked me ” So how is your father doing?” I was stunned. I looked around me, on me anywhere there might be a name tag and saw nothing. I asked him “How do you know who my father is? Do know who I am?” He looked kind of sheepish and said “I’m sorry, but you look just like your dad. You are Rev. BJ Hurst daughter?” (just can’t get away from that guy….LOL!!!!)
I am proud to say I do look like my dad. The other day someone told me that I look like mother, but I beg to differ. (not that I wouldn’t want to) Here is some proof and it is passed down to my daughter. (Lord have mercy upon her soul… jk. She is the best of all three…) You tell me if you seen the resemblance.
