Unexpected Places

We find heroes in the most unexpected of places.

The one time you sit somewhere else because someone took your normal spot.

The one time you did something different in your normal routine.

The one time you texted the friend you haven’t spoken to in forever.

They come out of nowhere

or at full speed,

helping us when we need it.

Hyping us up,

being there for us when we need it most,

encouraging us to keep going.

To

keep

moving.

They help us find the places where we belong.

They make us feel safe and loved.

We find heroes in the most unexpected of places

and they become people we will cherish

forever.
