Reflections Before Bedtime #82

By: Gabriela Yareliz

I was sitting on the train. I had a window seat. I saw a woman carrying her newborn, and, presumably, her husband, walking beside her, pushing the empty stroller.

He looked a bit tired. They were close to the stairs. I was thinking, ‘Oh man, he has to carry the stroller up the stairs, now. He must be so annoyed.’ And just as I was thinking that, suddenly, my focus went to the beautiful baby the mother was carrying.

Then, I noticed that the husband and wife (the parents) made eye contact. She made a kiss gesture to him, kissing the air. He did the same to her and winked at her. They both smiled really big. It was a beautiful moment. I realized that the husband wasn’t even looking at the stairs in front of him. He was looking at the only thing that matters.
