Special story for you guys.
So, I was out walking my dog around the pond before work the other day, and stopped at a picnic table to soak up some sun. I was shortly joined by a small child, maybe between one and two years old, and with the cutest blonde hair. His mother did not say much to me and I did not understand the language they spoke in, but we enjoyed each others company. I assume they were at the table before and had gone for a little walk, because there was a collection of dandelions already sitting on the table that the boy was immediately interested in. He climbed onto the table and gave one to me. I was surprised (why are such beautiful, small acts of kindness only found in children these days?) and took it graciously. Eventually he took it away, to be scolded by his mother, but then I knew what he wanted. He gave me a different one and demonstrated smelling it dramatically, so I smelled it. Have you ever smelled a dandelion? They actually smell better than many flowers! I gave that one back and he handed me another one, and he let me smell each dandelion from the collection. Eventually I really had to leave for work, so I thanked them both and went on my way. Remember, enjoy the little things, even when you think they're just weeds. Everything has a sweet side.
