There was a little girl quietly crying on the bus this morning. Giant elephant tears running down her face. Her mom and sister were sleeping silently in the seats next to her.
The girl kept looking over at her mom and gracefully slid off her seat. Her mom barked for her to get back on her seat and she did without hesitation. She seemed so sad and alone.
Just before getting off the bus I handed her a tissue. A stranger unnecessarily thanked me.
Maybe I don’t know the whole story, but it seemed all this little one needed was a big hug and some genuine love.
