Crossroads @ midlife? No, in this case it’s crossroads as in “school crossing”.
Jogging past a school crossing guard yesterday morning, I said, “Thank you for volunteering”.
She replied back, “Oh, I get paid, not much, but it is paid”. We both smiled because of the busy location and time of day.
I ran another 15 seconds and doubled back to talk to her.
“Do you know what kind of opportunity you have to say something encouraging to each child (maybe 30+) that crosses”?
“Be a leader today”. “Make a new friend today”. “Do something really nice for someone today”, I gave as examples.
Ain’t mid-life great?
