Today was actually quite a wonderful day. I personally was bouncing around in just a fantastic mood. I am a graphic design major, so I decided to go early to the Mac Lab to work on some projects. I was in there from 1:30-5. I was really trying to make my projects good. I wanted my teacher to be proud. I went back to my classroom at the end of the schedule class time, since I was in the Mac Lab doing the project, to see what my teacher thought. To put it simply.... he didn't like it. And you could tell. I wanted to cry in the moment. I ran outside and, though I am a college student, I called home to talk to my mommy. My little 12 year old brother answered. He told me my mom wasn't home. I was upset, I wanted to talk to her so bad. Just wanted to have a mommy hug. Right before I hung up so I could call my mom's cell, my brother said: "Have a GREAT day."
He didn't realize what he did there for me. He didn't realize that he gave me a smile, a longing for a brother hug. A longing of joy that my little brother knew when I needed that. I love that kid. He will definitely be a great man someday.
I learned from this that even if you don't know what is going on with someone, it is important to pay a little attention and let them know you care. Give them well wishes. Help them feel loved, like I've said earlier. Just saw something short and sweet to make their day.
