To the man in the hardware store:
You might remember my son. He was wearing a Spiderman costume while shopping with his father.
Y’all spoke briefly there, and when my son came home, a grin ran over to me and the words tumbled over and out: MAMA! A man said that I had the best Spiderman costume and I would win first prize!
Now, there was no costume competition, but his joy was palpable for the rest of the day.
Thank you for reminding me how taking a moment to say a kind word can make a difference in person’s life.
Thank you for taking the time to keep the light on in my son’s eyes.
