“A man has always wanted to lay me down, but never wanted to pick me up.”

“If you limit your choices only to what seems possible or reasonable, you disconnect yourself from what you truly want, and all that is left is compromise.”
I had this moment with this family. I’m in the country of Pennsylvania. I held the door open for them and this little girl said thankyou. She smiled so big and so bright and it was cool to see how appreciative she was. What I didn’t appreciate was her father, who not only didn’t say thankyou but looked at me in disgust as he whispered under his breath.
But the little white girl ran to the next door from her father to open the next door. She did it with such an amazing smile and was so happy to do it. I saw her fathers face and that made me even happier to know his daughter will be way more accepting and polite than her father.
