I stopped at a crosswalk the other day to let a herd of kids and the 2 adults that were with them to cross the street. The kids were probably 5 years old…
they waved their arms..
they touched the lines..
they didn’t touch the cracks..
they hurried to keep up with their mates..
they dawdled along knowing they wouldn’t get left behind..
One little girl jubilantly waved at me with all her being, with the biggest widest smile.
The joy, the innocence, the happiness!
I totally needed to see that, I needed to be reminded there is joy in this world!
