Can I ask you a question??
What is wrong with our society when people can't snap out of their busyness, their me-ness, to wave to a cute two year old baby??
Let me explain.
Saturday my mom and I and my kids all went to a big city to do some things. My mom had some things to take back, and my kids love to go to the big city, to the malls, so we went along for the ride.
We went to a mall there, and Sofia was bopping along in her stroller, waving and saying Hi to everyone she saw. She was absolutely darling, adorable, soooo cute!! I was so happy for her, because some of my other kids were painfully shy at her age.
Can I tell you that not one, NOT ONE person waved to her??
Can I tell you that people actually altered their course to GET AROUND her?????????
My stomach hurts just remembering!
Some even FROWNED AT HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
People, let me tell you that I am totally disgusted. And sad.
I feel sorry for those morons who couldn't even take the time out of their precious bubble of me-ness to wave to a cute baby girl, thereby brightening up their day AND hers!
I'm disgusted at what our society has become! I mean, I fully know how people are these days, but it hit home with me in a very glaring way.
I felt sad for Sofia, because perhaps, in her mind, she wondered why nobody was waving back at her. I even feel insulted that they dissed my baby girl like that!!!!!!
It just makes me sick!
I pray to God that I am never too caught up in myself to miss those moments that could transform my day. I hope to Him that I am aware of everyone, even the least of these. I don't want to miss a thing! I want to bless someone, I want to brighten someone's day, I want to be accessible!
