I don’t know about you, but I am so very impressed with the different kind of things that you all are doing every day -some of them even give me the chills! And, I realize it’s not always easy (or at least the first thing we think of) to make somebody else feel good when we are in the middle of our crazy days. That being said, some things are no brainers …
I will tell you one thing I did a couple of days ago. One of my sons is on the school football team, and we’ve had some pretty chilly afternoons – as you can well imagine. Well, on these cold days, I’ve made it kind of ‘our thing’ to pick up my skinny vanilla latte (of which I am addicted!), and a hot chocolate and chocolate donut for him for as soon as he gets into the car (the apple does not fall far from the tree, here …). Anyway, I was in the coffee shop ready to place my order, and a grandpa came in with his grandson, who was probably about 9 years old – and the boy made a bee-line for the only remaining chocolate donut. He was so happy that there was one remaining.
Yes, I’m afraid that I arrived at football practice sans donut. Sean hopped in the car, looked around, searched under a couple of things, and then looked at me with a questioning look. When I told him what happened, he said “That’s ok, Mom. I’m betting that boy was really happy when he ate ‘my’ donut, and I bet he will always remember that special outing with his grandpa.” Wow – I was so happy to know that my teenager could be so compassionate! Of course, he did say “Tomorrow you can get me two donuts”… yes – he is still a teenager – but a least one with a good heart!
