Sunshine of the Day
If you look for it, at least one good thing happens to you each day.

There should always be time for a deserved high five.
Per usual, I was running late to jury duty this morning. I was literally running from the parking garage to the crosswalk and had to slow down briefly to wait for the light.
There was a little girl and her father waiting and I barely acknowledged their existence. I was adjusting my bag to prepare for a good run and I heard her say, "I lost my tooth."
The light changed and I stepped into the crosswalk but they stayed behind. She said it again, "I lost my tooth."
Still hustling forward, I turned to see if she was talking to me. We made eye contact and she pointed at the hole in her mouth and said, "Like right now! I just lost my tooth."
I regret that I thought I didn't have time to run back and give her a high five. Lame. But I did smile and scream back, "That's awesome! I hope the tooth fairy comes tonight."
