I'm sitting in a blue comfy chair in the library. My eyes are filling with tears, happy tears. Tears because all morning I have been pitying myself for not being good enough, happy enough, adventurous enough, and thankful enough. Sitting next to me is a guy my age. He's at a table for two with his friend. His friend has down syndrome. I'm not sure of his age or why he has a black eye patch on his eye but he is trying so hard to repeat the words his friend is reading in the book out loud. My heart is completely melting for I know this time spent together is completely selfless; something I need to do more of. The answer to my prayers today.
Some of Gods greatest gifts are unanswered prayers, but even greater is an answer in the form of an others' selfless act of service.
