Having not been in the greatest mood (even after working out), I was going through the motions of getting dressed at Fitcorp (a gym I joined earlier this year).
While pulling on my dark colored dress socks, something on the bottom of one of the socks caught my eye.
Upon further examination, I discovered it was a small sticker with a heart on it!
One of the numerous stickers which litter our home had decided to stick to me and take a trip into Boston!
Right then and there, my day had been made.
A simple sticker was enough for me to do a reality-check. I immediately thought of my daughters, the love they radiate, and all that I had to be grateful for.
The sticker stayed on my sock for the rest of the day.
This happened just a few days after we had gone out as a family to the local Papa Gino’s for lunch. And, unbeknown to me, I walked up to the counter and ordered our food with a (different colored) “heart” sticker on my chest. That sticker had been awarded to me by our daughter Anna.
I just love being a dad.
