I took my son to the Great Clips near 86th and Michigan in Indianapolis for a long overdue haircut. A very kind and talented Stephanie did a fine job of hearing our wishes and doing her best to make them come true.
My son smiled big when Stephanie was done. He came home and washed out the extra hair bits, put in a little gel and is waiting for the natural drying process to reveal his true new do.
You know it really is the simple things in life that bring us such joy. For him it was a new cut. For me it was seeing the smile on his face when he caught his reflection.
Today I was reminded that, even when the news seems to be bleak, I don't have to look too hard for happiness.
