Today my friend and I went to Starbucks to get in some much needed study time. While we were there we were chatting about all of the upcoming assignments that we needed to finish, which created some unneeded stress. A little while later, these two little girls came up to where we were sitting and sat across from where we were. From there, they proceeded to stare at us with their big brown eyes. The next 20 minutes consisted of chatter between two 4 year olds and two twenty year olds about princesses, dogs, puddle jumping, mice, and Frozen. One of the little girls bent forward during our conversation and drank straight from my friends water and then proceeded to pull coins out from her boot telling us that, “these are my coins that I took from my mom’s wallet.”
This 20 minute span of time made my entire day. Children have a way of putting a smile on your face. They are brutally honest, yet are full of a love and kindness that I wish everybody in the world had. They walk around with little to worry about, always asking for more and always looking up at the people around them. In a world where there are so many things that can put a frown on your face, it’s hard to remember all of the things that can make us smile, too. These two small people reminded me that even though my life seems hard at times, I have a lot to be grateful for and I should never forget to smile.
❤ Have a good night!
