In the presence of Greatness

I had to run some errands today and one of those was to stop by Hobby Lobby. I had Jack , Zeke, and Gabe with me and no one wanted to go in with me. So as I was walking out the door, I saw a couple hand their baby to big tall black guy and take a picture. I knew he had to be someone important by the way they were talking to him. The couple walked out in front of me into the parking lot and I asked them who he was. He was TAJ BOYD! I knew I had to get Gabe. So off I ran to the car. Gabe’s face lit up and we grabbed his IPOD and raced back in Hobby Lobby. We started hunting the poor guy down and finally found him. This is the result.

He is really a nice guy and spent a little time talking with us. He told Gabe to do his best in school and keep trying. He was super patient and very kind to take the time out to talk to us and get a picture. Gabe is elated. Now the boys have decided it might be worth their time to go into Hobby Lobby with me from now on. I love it.
