TRIGGER: Talks about a toddler.
I don’t know if it’s because I’ve finally had enough coffee. Or that I had finally drug myself out of my bad mood…but earlier today I finally started to smile. And after the mood I got up in today, trust me, that’s a good thing!
Actually, I think it’s because of my meeting that I was in at the time. I was covering a county commission meeting, which is usually pretty dry. But today, a ray of sunshine walked in that door.
One of the speakers brought in his toddler son (chief binky man). He came in beaming and waving just full of life. I’m sure he’s not more than two years old. And he truly brought a smile to everybody’s face in the meeting — even on the faces of people who generally don’t smile this time of the morning.
Funny how a kid can turn the mood around. After exchanging several smiles and waves with the toddler, I realized he made my morning with his blonde hair, blue eyes and smile.
The point I’m trying to make is it doesn’t matter that I had to be at work early today. It doesn’t matter that it’s cold outside. It doesn’t matter what I have to get done. There’s beauty no matter where you go. It took the smile of this little boy that boy to remind me of that.
