Yesterday me and a few guys were playing soccer outside. Suddenly I notice this really old woman watching us with a smile. Obviously I don’t know what she was smiling about. Maybe she was taking pleasure out of the energy of youth (well to her that’s what we were). Maybe she quietly enjoyed the fact that unlike when she was young, now it was a normal thing for girls to play soccer with the guys and even score doing it. Maybe we reminded her of her own children or grand children. Somehow having her there made me run more and try harder. I will never know what exactly she thought but it was a beautiful reminder: even a stranger can give us kind attention and we will fill it with kind thoughts and feelings once we notice. And we can do the same for others.
