I was traveling for work today.
I was driving through a different city in an unfamiliar neighborhood.
Suddenly I saw two boys, probably around ten years old each, running from between some houses.
I slowed down thinking they were going to run into the street.
Instead, they each stopped right by the road, standing in the grass between the sidewalk and the curb.
A car was approaching from the other direction and they started waving madly at that car.
I couldn’t see what the other car did.
As I pulled closer they started waving madly at me.
With huge smiles on their faces.
I waved back.
That was all they wanted.
And all I needed.
With all that is going on in this world I’m heart glad for the reminders that children know what matter.
