2000 Tickets

While Daddy flew back to India because of his Mom’s passing, I treated the boys to Space Aliens’. (By the way, love their tag line- “Fill Your Inner Space.”) I had to compose a post about this because there was a couple there that boosted mine, and the boys spirits. I was really missing Ashish and I could sense that the boys were as well. Of course this is something he had to do, and we fully supported him, but none-the-less, it’s hard…especially on a 3 year old and a 1 year old. While playing games and waiting for our food, an older couple came up and they were watching Nishad passionately pounce on a “shark” game and laugh with glee when he collected his ONE ticket. haha. They smiled and said, “What are you going to do with all of your tickets?” He just smiled and then they said, “Well here. Our Grandchildren don’t live near us and you are such good boys, we want you to have this” and they handed us all their tickets. How sweet was that? The boys now only had their Grandpa’s left on this earth, and they too were far away in Chicago and India. We stood at the ticket redeemer feeding tickets in for quite awhile. The boys had about 2000 tickets all together! Nishad beamed as he was able to pick out the tractor/farm set displayed way at the top. Tiger was happy with anything! He’s always happy. The couples act of kindness might not have meant a lot to them…but it sure did mean a lot to two very special boys.
