Awhile back, a cashier at the grocery store commented on the bread I was buying, and told me how much she enjoyed it with a cup of coffee. I agreed . Soon my visits to the grocery store were made special if she happened to be working that day. I started to always go to her line, even if other ones were moving faster.
Together we have had great conversations about delightful foods to have with a good cup of coffee, art, children and interesting little places to visit.
One day as we were speaking of our children, she looked at me and said, "I've always believed raising children is ones greatest masterpiece."
