I Hear You

I’m working from my usual spot with a view of the street below. But today, there’s a woman standing directly in my line of vision, on the opposite side of the street. She’s just hanging out. Watching cars and greeting the occasional person. One conversation overheard:

Woman: (cheerful and friendly) “Hey, how you doing today?”

Man Passing: (in a low baritone voice) “Good, you?”

Woman: “I woke up today, so that’s good.”

Man Passing: (chuckles) “I hear you.”

It made my ears prick. It’s so obvious, yet how often do we give thanks for “just waking up.”
