Today was a sad day for my parents best friends. My dads bestfriends dad passed away this morning. He was very sad about it because it was his dad but it was better because now he’s not in pain anymore. Normally my dad tries to avoid things like this because he gets completely awkward around these depressing situations, for example when my grandmother got very ill he didn’t want to go see her because he was scared. He always gets scared about these things. But today I saw my dad man up and do something completely unhim. He called his friend to comfort him and in all honesty his wife texted my mom and said this is the most he has smiled in a long time. I was blown away. My dad never calls or shows this emotion. It was really a sweet surprise for a sad event and it still just shows me that even though the world can be a hard place to handle at times, people will always be there when you need them and when you least expect it, the world will show the small light of hope.
