My Dad had taken my little sister shopping, and naturally, they had gone to the toy-section of the store! :) Among the stuffed animals they found a large wonderful polar bear, and my little sister fell in love with it right away! After a while, my Dad said she had to say Good bye to the bear, and she did. She's usually good at that, she can pretty much accept that the stuffed animals "live" in the store, and she accepts saying Good bye to them. Well, after walking around the store a little, my little sister caught sight of the polar bear again! She rushed there at once of course, and my Dad followed her. Just as they arrived, another man comes, picks up the polar bear, looks at and takes it and is about to leave with it!! As he turns around, he sees my little sister standing there.
She's not saying a words, but tears are trickling down her cheeks and her eyes are fixed on the polar bear.
The other man sees my Dad coming along, and he asks my Dad if this is his little girl. When my Dad said yes, the other man handed over the polar bear and told my Dad to buy it for her!!
Talk about making one little girl very happy!!!
My Dad told me the story as we had lunch yesterday, and I actually had to wipe away a tear or two!! I'm really really happy for my sister (she pretty much won't let the polar bear out of her sight now!!), and I'm most impressed by the other man, it was very big of him to let go of it ... Aparently he had kids of his own so he knew how much they take to certain things, but it was still a very decent thing to do!
My day has been very slow, I actually slept for nearly 12 hours tonight!!! Talk about being exhausted ... I guess I really need a rest now.
Other stuff are still very complicated though ... some things I've managed to more or less sort out, but there are other things that just feel very overwhelming, and I can't really say that I feel 'good' ... but I guess that's life, right?!
