on my flight from Indianapolis to Baltimore
I sat next to an unaccompanied minor
who was traveling to Baltimore to see her Mother.
With Southwest Airlines open seating
anyone could have sat next to her,
in fact, many people avoided her
and her boundless energy during boarding.
a couple occupied the two seats to her right.
Within minutes the young girl began chatting
and the couple likely realized this wouldn't be a relaxing flight
and they just rolled with it.
As drinks were being served
the couple didn't even get a chance to voice their requests
because they were cut off by the young girl stating,
I'll take water with a straw
and so will they
so we can paint!
And they just rolled with it.
the young girl had brought out her Hello Kitty paint sheets
and the couple spent the next hour following her instructions
As I type this
the man next to her is being covered with Marvel stickers.
They are on his ears, in his beard, arms, everywhere.
And he is just rolling with it.
Moral of the story:
There (It) is good in this world.
In fact, there is more good than bad in this world
if we just open our eyes to it.
There isn't a script or instruction manual for love.
You just have to roll with it.
