here we go with the second edition of “tell me something good,” which was debuted last friday along with the intent behind it!
it occurred yet again at a grocery store (can you tell i spend most of my time buying food?) i was casually perusing the individual bagels in the bakery, contemplating whether or not my morning should include a sesame bagel or just an entire loaf of bread. this is when i saw the goodness happen.
a young boy, probably around four years ago with his trusty thomas the train backpack larger than his own back, stood in front of the section next to me. he gazed up with a twinkle in his eye and his mouth fell slightly open – he found the donut section.
i noticed an elderly man come up behind him and rest his withered hands on his grandson’s shoulders. the young boy whipped around, turning his gaze from the glazed donuts to his grandfather’s eyes and said,
“oh pleeeeeease can i have just one?! i promise it won’t ruin my dinner! pleeeeeeease!?!?“
their eyes locked for a few moments and then the grandfather gave a swift nod and said,
“pick the best one!“
he chose the one with sprinkles. smart kid.
the grandfather helped him put it in the little bag and folded over the top, to decrease the chance of an escape should the bag drop. with an extra pep in his step, the little boy grabbed the donut in one hand and his grandfather’s hand with the other.
that, to me, was simple goodness.
your turn – tell me something good you have seen lately!
