As the kids and I were leaving Walmart today, a group of adults who were blocking our passage split down the middle to let us pass.
“I feel like I’m crossing the finish line of a marathon!” I joked.
Immediately, not even looking to one another, they broke into exceptionally loud cheers and clapping, and so I jogged through, fists in the air, looking for my finishing medal, and laughing. It was amazing!
Minutes later, after loading the kids into my car, the group arrived at my car, returned my cart for me, and asked if that was my first successful marathon.
“It was! And it’s such a satisfying accomplishment!” Indeed, some days do feel like a marathon. It was clear they knew the exhaustion of my day. We all enjoyed the moment together.
Thank you to the folks from Musquash. You made my day.
