Shout Outs: From us to the people that matter most to us

After dropping off my friend’s child at Rice Elementary this morning, I was waiting to pull my car onto Old Bullard Road.  I noticed the crossing guard bundled up in many layers of clothes to keep warm in this 25-degree morning.  I then noticed a woman get out of her white SUV with a steaming cup of coffee and hand it to the guard.  I could see that he was grateful for the kind gesture.  Few, if any, words were exchanged from what I could tell.  Just probably a “good morning” and “enjoy this hot cup of coffee” or something like that.  My heart was warmed to see this act of kindness.  What a happier place this would be if we all reached out to even just one person a day and intentionally did something to brighten someone’s day.

I love that my son’s favorite word is hello! He says it and sings it 100 different ways and all of them with a huge smile on his face. How nice to be greeted so sweetly about every 10 minutes. He keeps me smiling all day long!
