We packed up the kids and took them to Lowe's to get our ceiling fan(s). It had been a slower-than-I-wanted morning and I wasn't feeling awesome. Not grumpy but not great. Just kind of there.
At the checkout lane, the cashier said, "You're my new hero."
Me: "Excuse me?"
Cashier: "You're my new hero. Look at these three kids! They're beautiful children and you look so great. You don't look like you chase after three kids!"
Me: "Well, thank you."
How sweet was that! It was just a little thing, but it totally made my day. It just reminds me of how the little things we do can mean a lot to the people we do them for. Thanks to this stranger for giving me a boost and reminding me of that!
