It’s funny, the things that we allow to simply ‘ruin’ our day are by comparison to real struggles minuscule at best. Spilling coffee on our shirt as we are heading to work.

Simply, far too often we let the little things get to us and determine our day.
Seeing this young man smile through tragedy, and also want to spread that joy with others, really puts things into perspective.
