I saw the greatest thing yesterday

I was walking in Riverside Park, which is always a crowded scene on Sundays. Bike riders, walkers and runners compete for room on the path, while sun bathers, readers and couples crowd the benches and grass. Often a group of children is playing softball or soccer. Yesterday, a kayaking group was offering free turns on the Hudson on brightly colored kayaks. It's free and they'll only be doing it for a few more weeks, while the weather is warm. You should go.

And then, someone whizzed by me on roller blades. It was a nun, in full blue-and-white habit, rosary around her waist, wimple fluttering behind her in the breeze. She looked so happy. Cheered me right up.
