Liza looked at me with confusion, as her eyes seemed to express,“Why is she so nice to me?”“Oh you’re welcome,” Tootie said. “I like to be nice. I have two college boys, and I miss ‘em. I figure if I am nice to some young people, some others will be nice to my boys.”That melted me. I empathized and thought, wow, I am becoming a mom like her, with a grown child that will live far away from home. From Liza’s perspective, the whole scene was a tad strange, and I admit, it was unlikely that Tootie was destined to be her new best friend, yet I appreciated her intentions and approach to good Karma.
