At a recent visit to my cardiologist, I had an eye opening conversation with the receptionist.
It went like this:
She: (while making my future appointment) Will you be traveling for Thanksgiving?
Me: No, not right now. Will you?
She: Yes, we’re going to Tennessee.
Me: Do you have family that lives there?
She: No, my husband wants my daughters and me to see and experience snow.
Me: Snow? Have you never seen snow?
She: No, I haven’t and neither have my girls.
Me: Really? Never?
She: No never. I was born on a tropical island and my daughters were born here in Florida. We’re really excited.
Me: Well, I hope that it will be cold enough for you to see snow. It’s very pretty when it first falls. It’s as white as white can be; almost blinding.
She: We’re all excited and looking forward to it.
Me: Be sure to frolic like a child in the snow and make a big snowman. You have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your husband and daughters.
Sometimes, the innocence of others brings into reality, ‘What a Wonderful World’ we have.
