Yesterday, Baby fell asleep on the way back from Mommy & Me Yoga (fun fun fun), so I was just cruising around town to let her sleep. I pulled up to the window at Taco Bell and whispered "Hi, can I have a small Coke?"  The woman looked puzzled, but then she glanced at the backseat, turned, and got my drink. When she came back, her eyes were all glassy and red. She waved away my money and turned away from the window.

I pulled away with mixed emotions. I wanted to turn back, give her a hug, and tell her that--although I didn't know her story--she had a kind heart, and I appreciated the gesture.  Since I was unable to do that (and frankly too shy), I took the experience and put it here: a little real-life reminder that people are far more than the tiny little snapshots we see as we go about our days.

Be kind to each other.
