I am so pleased that I have followers already! I thought that this week I would be keeping the stuff I posted and.... I'm going to give it Away! Yippee! I'm so pleased to be added to some of your blogs as a favorite. Soon I will be adding some of my favorites here. This is great!
Today I was in the grocery store picking up a few things and passed by a man who always greets me. He doesn't work there. He's not creepy. He just looks me straight in the eye and says 'Hi'. Then he will look at whichever child I have with me and say "That's precious cargo. Take good care of it." He's right, of course, and I do my best. But I've been curious as to why he always says this until today. Today I overheard him telling the cashier that "We should all be passionate about life." Oh, I thought, I think I see now. This is how he is passionate about his love for children. I am impressed that in this simple action he takes shows his passion and passes it on. He works with what he has and is passionate about what he cares about. Simple actions matter. When he tells me to take care of my 'precious cargo' my kids are brought to the forefront of my mind, then I see them. I get less lost in what kind of bread in cheapest and more caught up in my kids. Hooray for him! Thanks Stranger Man.
