The simple things like smiling or saying “Hi.” The joy of a handshake of an admirer, or better, a photo shot with them.
The complex things such being a mom, a dad, a husband, a wife, teenage years, and religion. The confounding, a dying 4 year old.
I heard about this little boy from his grandmother. Funny, or not, how we can miss these things when they are right next to us.
The grandmother is a friend. I have worked with her son, the uncle of this little boy. I have spoken with her several times in the last month.
How did I not know of this? What was my focus?
The stuff that really matters sometimes slips by us. Not that we can fix it. We can share, care, and love ‘em. Sometimes that is what we can do, let them know they are loved.
May God bless you Dyrk.
