Teach Your Children Well

Sweet boys in a pickup truck on Cozumel Island
Too bad the photo didn't turn out better, but I had one of those special and almost perfect moments this morning driving to work. One of my favorite tunes was on the CD player, "Teach Your Children Well" by Crosby, Stills & Nash:Greatest Hits, and I pulled up to a light behind a pickup truck with three little boys in the back. They were absolutely beautiful boys and had the sweetest smiles. I pulled my camera out of my purse and began to snap a few photos through the windshield glass. The boy on the left saw me first and he smiled and waved. Then the boy on the right realized I had a camera and smiled too. The third boy is much closer up to the front of the truck, but all three boys began to smile and wave. We waved back and forth until the light changed, and the truck turned right as I continued down 30th Avenue to the office.

Cozumel is not a perfect place. In reality, nowhere is. But there are still some days where it is almost perfect. As the tune played :Teach Your Children Well" - I thought of these three innocent and beautiful children that will be our future. I feel very happy to leave this wonderful island in their hands. 

Thanks, little boys, for making my day (almost) perfect!
