At Grant’s baseball game yesterday, one of the little kids on the other team was playing 2nd base. As one of our guys hit the ball toward him, he bent over to field it. He let the ball go by him because he spied something else on the ground and he picked that up instead.
He ran towards the stands to his mother, “Look mom! I found a quarter!!!”
Parents from both teams were just dying laughing.
On a day when the tally is 27 people dead from horrible attacks by deranged gunmen, when the economy is only getting worse, and when sadness and terrible things seem to be everywhere you look… it truly is a little gift from God to be able to smile and laugh at something so precious and innocent.
Also? That kid really needs to start saving for retirement now, so he better hang on to that quarter….
