As I waited for the light to change to cross the street this morning, a young man pushing a little boy in a stroller came up beside me. The little guy was clutching - and I do mean clutching - a teddy bear.
I smiled at him - he looked a little worried, but to my surprise, he gave me a huge smile. Then his dad said to him, "Can you say, 'hi'?". He shook his head, uh-uh. "Can you say, 'bye'?" He looked at me, smiled, and blew me a kiss!
And life is grand!
