I saw Delight...

You know how you have those days when you just feel lousy? There is nothing really wrong, maybe a little headache, but you just can't seem to get out of the funk. You really don't want anyone to see you and you don't feel like going anywhere. I was having one of those days.

Tarzan asked me to go to the store with him. I'm sure it was a ploy to get me out of my funk, but it didn't work. I reluctantly said I would go, but I wasn't getting out of the car.

When we arrived at the store, I stayed in the car and listened to the radio while he went in to shop. As I sat there...

A grandmother and little girl about 4 years old arrived. As they walked past the plastic, mechanical, horses, the little girl asked if she could ride. I couldn't hear them, but I could tell the grandmother said no.

Shortly thereafter, they came out of the store. The little girl was skipping and went right past the horses on her way to the car. The grandmother stopped and called her back. The little girl squealed with delight and got on the pink horse. The grandmother put the 75 cents in and then to my delight, climbed on the blue horse and inserted another 75 cents.

That child will never remember what they bought in the store, but she will forever remember the delight of riding horses with her grandmother...

and I got out of my funk. Sometimes, you need a delightful surprise.
