Moment of Joy

Today I had a moment of pure joy...I had the chance to pick up my niece from kindergarten. I waited outside the classroom for her and when she saw me she squealed with happiness and ran over to hug me. She ran past a tiny little girl with Down-syndrome, all dressed in pink. This tiny, sweet little girl saw me hug my niece ran right over to me, a stranger, and threw her arms around my legs too.  She squeezed so tightly her eyes shut. When I hugged her back she looked up at me with a huge smile and said thank-you and then ran off. Children are amazing.

Just thought I'd share.
