the year 2007 ended in a remarkable way for me.
let me tell you all about it.
eileen and i were at the grocers, picking up tortillas for dinner.
as we were leaving, a fifty-something woman noticed my shoelace was untied.
she yelled to me, "hey! do you need me to tie your shoelace?"
i figured she was only letting me know. i said, "oh no, its alright! i'll get it later."
she stopped me, and said "no, here."
she knelt down. tied my shoe slowly, with so much care.
wrapped her hands around the ankle of the shoe to make sure it was snug, asked me if it was too tight. and complimented my laces.
when she was done, she lifted her hand for me to assist her in getting up.
she was incredible.
she made 2007 an amazing year. and in the nick of time, too.
