Small Town Charm


I went to the doctor today with a minor ailment. While I was in the waiting room, a mom and her 8 year old daughter were waltzing to the tune from the Nutcracker which the mom was humming. Their faces were lit from the lights on the Christmas tree in the corner. They quibbled over who was leading. I smiled at them and they smiled back, not a whit embarrassed. Both exuded happiness and confidence, each lost in the moment. As was I. Not even the Bolshoi performing the ballet could have pleased me more.
