Did I not notice these things as a kid? Are the stories just getting sadder? I was meandering Target isles when I overheard a young woman talking loudly of her husband. Just as he was deployed, her daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. Turned around, little knowing, that I would find the cutie patootiest petite little princess in the world, with a shiny hairless head and a thinner frame than a toddler should have. I wanted to fling myself on the mom and hug her eternally.

Carried on as if nothing... It wasn't my conversation to join. So that picture has branded me. For life.
