Slight

Slight. It has been a while since I heard this word. But when I do I think of the small things in life.

Like little kids for an example. So small and innocent in life you wouldn’t dare to hurt them and if you do I wish you bad luck in life. Having a daughter made me realize how much I actually care for kids. I mean I always did but it became stronger. Like I dislike when I see little kids walking home from the bus stop alone. I couldn’t do it. I’ll miss hours from work to make sure my kid gets home safely and I hope you do too.

Or I remember back in 8th grade I took my sister and brother to the bus stop that early morning. On my way back home I took a different route home. I don’t know why but I didn’t care. When I got closer to the alleyway I kept hearing this meow, meow, meow. I knew immediately it was a baby kitten because it sounded so weak.

I stop and stood there for a minute and notice it was probably a day or 2 old but was strong enough to walk. A minute I later it was trying to follow me home. I look at home one last time and said to myself I can’t leave you here. I grab the baby kitten and took him to my front porch. My grandparents were still sleeping so they didn’t hear him.

I got ready for school, grab the kitten and walk to a neighbor house who was a cat lady who lives down the street. I knock on her door and told her what happen. She told me I’m glad you brought him here and I said I couldn’t leave this small kitten outside it would have died.

I honestly don’t know what happen to that cat after but I’m sure it had a good life.

The small things will always matter in life just don’t overlook them and I wish you a good day.
