Daily Awesome = Crossing Guards
How does one get so much pleasure from something so simple? The daily awesome is not so much in the technical definition of “awesome” of expressing awe in the remarkable or outstanding but more in the informal sense, that sometimes you have to slow down and appreciate some of the common, everyday things we take for granted.
I was driving home from work tonight, in the rain and fog. I saw our 2 crossing guards decked out in their trusty yellow rain gear from head to toe with their spiffy, bright vests. One looks like Santa. It’s true. The other guard, an older gentlemen as well was escorting his little charges across the intersection. I was waiting patiently watching these two girls cross when they suddenly stopped in the middle of the cross walk … and hugged the crossing guard. Then they toddled off on their merry way. I smiled.
