This week, I watch as friends find each other before school. One little girl claps her hands, jumps up and down, and runs to greet her friend. She’s waving her hands and calling out the name of her friend.
It’s a lovely greeting. Who wouldn’t want to start the day with at least one person so obviously glad to see you?
Children withhold nothing. They aren’t self-conscious or controlled when it comes to matters of friendship.
Not enough of us clap our hands, jump up and down, and run to greet folks. We aren’t waving hands, calling out names, and showing the kind of lovely greeting that could change someone’s day.
Someone needs a lovely greeting today. Someone needs to know you are so obviously glad to see him or her.
Is there someone who needs to know you are so obviously glad to see him or her?
