Dear Emmy, 

I’m not sure how you do it, but you make us all feel like we did something special to deserve your smile. I see people walking by, minding their own world and suddenly you catch their faraway eye when they hear you say “Hi!”…right at them, with no second thoughts about who they are, or how they aren’t inviting your interaction. They weren’t looking for you but you found them.
And then, just like that they stop. And words like “Oh my goodness, that smile!” and “Well that made my day!” come out.
And for some, there is an inevitable urge to reach out their hand to touch yours…as if to say “Thank you for that…” and then it’s all over-you got them. You win their affection and they do all they can to get another grin. It’s your thing.
I’m not sure how you do it, but your curious joy puts me right on the edge of my seat. You distract me in every way and I simply can’t stop watching you. You make me proud a million times and then some when you go around making our days.
I’m not sure how you do it, Em. But you do. You fill our cups and you change our pace.  You make us feel noticed-which is all most of us want anyway. How did you know?

All My Love,

Mama
