"Every moment is a golden one for him who has the vision to recognize it as such." -Henry Miller
This year I'm a senior in marching band. We got a new band director this year and none of us were sure how we were going to do this year. For months we thought the new director was a complete joke. This weekend, we went to a competition and for the first time in our school's history, our band got grand champion on the day. Knowing that I was one of the people to make that possible made my entire senior year.
My friend was in town on business when she found out her mother was placed in Hospice care. I took my friend to the airport and she was visibly distraught when dropping off her rental car. The car return clerk asked if she was OK, and when my friend said "no", the clerk asked if she needed a hug. She gave my friend the biggest hug and shared some very encouraging words with her. We were all in tears, but IMMD to see a stranger offer such compassion.
Everywhere I go except work, I usually wear jeans, t-shirts, and hoodies. Yesterday, I decided to wear something out that was distinctly girly, and I felt really nervous and uncomfortable. However, while I was standing in line to buy myself a soda, a woman walked up and said, "Your outfit is really fabulous!" Her honest enthusiasm MMD!
