The person who “pays forward” a young mothers bill in the grocery line,
the elder who listens to the tears of a teen, and shares her wisdom,
The cat who jumps in your lap and purrs when you are lonely,
The mom who makes extra cookies for the shut-in next door,
The teacher who stays after class to help a struggling student,
The driver who lets you in line at a long red light,
the tired mom who rubs her teens back until she hears his soft breath,
These are the rare people we need more of, and who aren’t recognized.
