I work in an amazing organization. We treat children as both inpatients and outpatients. Thousands of them every year. My particular building has several outpatient therapy programs, so I have the privilege of seeing kids come and go throughout the day.
Recently I was leaving the office a bit later than I normally do and was hustling through the lobby when a young boy noticed me in my suit and smiled. I stopped, smiled back and he asked,
"Are you the Mayor of the Therapy Center?"
I smiled...his Mom laughed, and he made my whole week much, much brighter.
Sometimes in all the chaos of our own "stuff" we forget that there are so many others less fortunate than we are. I'm going to try and remember that a little more each day.
What makes you stop and think?
I'd love to hear from you.
