Imagine you just had both of your legs amputated. Still young, many things to discover and learn in this world and puff! no more legs. Just as you were trying to come to term with your loss, suddenly this schmuck looking at you and gave you a smile. Not just any smile but one that says "Hey, it's such a great day huh, to be out in the sun, under the blue sky and just enjoy the day." I am not saying it is wrong to smile with such meaning behind it but I can just imagine the mental exhaustion having to cope with a new situation.
"I just lost both legs and you asking me to enjoy the day? Screw you, and screw everyone. Screw today, screw the sun! I don't feel like being happy!"
I can just imagine one of the many people I smiled to had this thought as I smiled to them for the past few days.
Then, I saw a couple and their newborn baby. I saw a caring husband, showering his wife and child with such love, compassion that it made me want to share my heart and my love. I saw the glow on the wife's face, brimming with happiness, perhaps having been showered and pampered with love by her husband, and the fact that they both have this little cute human being as a proof of their love, and commitment. Not only to ensure the survival of their bloodlines (biologically speaking) but also to pass down those feelings they have at that moment, and from the moment they knew they were gonna live their lives together - to the next generation. And to the one after that. And it will not stop, God willing.
At that moment, I asked myself. "How are you doing today, Danial?"
