The kid at the store

The other day I saw this kid at the grocery store standing in the checkout line with his mom. He had on baggy pants and a snowboarding jacket. He had the rim of his Oakley hat pulled over the top of his sunglasses. I have seen people do that outside to keep the snow out. But in the store? Seriously? I only glanced at him for a second but my first thought was… punk kid.

I saw him again today. His mom was holding his hand. He is blind.

…and that was my lesson today in humility.

    We all have these moments. Thanks for sharing yours. I try to remind myself on a regular basis that assumptions get us nowhere.
