Bringer of Smiles

Ever since Hunter could walk, he has faithfully helped me carry out the garbage to the dumpster at the gym every day - even when the bags (full of paper for him) were bigger than he was.

And ever since we have been on this garbage-carrying expedition, he has never, not even once, failed to bring a smile to the customers entering and exiting the restaurant that resides next door.

After over two years of this, it enthralls me that there has yet to been a single person who hasn't smiled at Hunter following his Mommy and carrying his bag.

It's amazing how something so simple can, in an instant, bring even the most pre-occupied, business-oriented person to stop and smile at the little boy walking down the sidewalk, carrying a simple garbage bag, smiling at his Mommy.

"I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth."
3 John 1:4

Hunter is 3 years, 5 months old
