To the woman in the Ikea parking lot

You stopped me as you pulled out from your parking spot to applaud my parenting. Bewildered, I barely managed “thanks”. You told me I’m doing a great job and to keep doing what I’m doing. 

Now, reflecting on your random act of kindness, I am sufficiently moved to feel my eyes burning. 

I needed that more than you’ll ever know. 

Thank you.

  1. Isn’t it amazing how these angels appear when we need them? (Says the woman who generally subscribes to a vision of a cruel nihilistic universe, but hey, I love being proven wrong here).
