In the checkout line at the store, a little girl stared at me for 30 seconds straight. When I paused and met her gaze fully she flashed me a mega-watt smile and said, confidently, matter-of-factly: "You are really beautiful."

Oh, my heart!

"Thank you, sweetie," I answered. "It's so kind of you to say so. I think you are really beautiful, too."
