Happiness in unexpected moments

It’s Monday and man it really is a Monday, I got to sleep late last night.  You see I did something silly, I’m moving houses and not cooking much and I yielded to temptation and at dinner had a Coke.  I’ve been pretty much off caffeine for a couple of weeks so a nice full turbo Coke at dinner time, packing boxes and too much on my mind and suddenly it’s way past midnight and I’m not asleep.

So I leap into Monday and running around, the typical thing in my job, putting out fires, dealing with people being ridiculously silly, people lying, etc…. Then as I’m passing through one of our buildings I bumped into a colleague with her little niece and nephew, 2 and 4, being shown around the museum.  I stopped over and said hi, they were really cute kids, when suddenly her little niece makes the universal child symbol for pick me up, arms extended up high.  So I put my arms out and boom she’s in my arms and for a minute we’re looking at the animals in the museum.  Her aunt says to her mom, wow she never does that.  I had to give her back, had places to go but just that little moment of connection with that little one made the whole day better.

So my challenge to you my friends, give someone that moment tomorrow, spread a little happiness and as always, have a happy day my friends ~ Rev Kane
