My job consists of me driving around from cafe to cafe, finding wifi and designing websites. Normally I won’t witness anything enthusing. In fact, on more than one occasion I’ve heard people brag about their partying over the weekend and how drunk they got. Another time I heard two people talking about their marital problems, and long story short they were having an affair with one another (if you’re a guy, don’t be stupid and go to a woman for counselling, go to your pastor or an older man). Anyways, these are the kinds of conversations that are predominant in cafes(at least the ones in my area).
Today, I witnessed something beautiful. As I was sitting down working on a website, I saw a young 20 year old guy with his 1 or 2 year old daughter. He was talking to her and was telling her how much he loved her, how precious she was to him. He had an ice cream cone that he was sharing with her and she was getting very sticky as she was licking it. She had ice cream all over her face. But he couldn’t stop kissing her. He would take the napkin and wipe her face and share more ice cream with her and then, he kissed her again. I started tearing up as I witnessed this love. I’m not sure if it was the day I had or the coffee I drank but there was something incredibly powerful happening right before my eyes. A young dad, taking responsibility to love and care for his little daughter. Even as I write this and recollect my thoughts, tears are brought to my eyes.
