some days my heart smiles..some days it needs a tissue

So yesterday at work this little girl came into the store and of course I noticed her right away.  She and her father walked around the store, found what they needed, and came to me to check out.  I have not been able to stop thinking about this little girl.  She had to be 4 or 5, she was completely bald, very pale and was wearing a mask.  She was obviously very sick, but I could not bring myself to ask.  When I looked at her beautiful blue eyes I tried to smile, but what I really wanted to do was cry.  I cannot imagine the pain this family was going through.  So yes, yesterday my heart was definitely crying for this little girl and her family.
