Just a little something...

Just a little something special that happened to me in the Nex last night that I wanted to share. On Pearl Harbor there is a huge exercise every year called RIMPAC and representatives from Countries all over the world will flood the base, the restaurants, Nex, Commissary, and pretty much anywhere else within walking distance of base will be flooded with Koreans, Japanese, Australians, and Canadians. You hear pretty much every language in the world whenever you go out. I was standing in line at the elevator last night and a young guy, probably younger than my myself, was smiling and waving at Isabella who was shamelessly flirting with him with all she had...he was clearly from another country and was with a big group of other guys, but he looked up at me and said "she cute!" I thanked him and Tyler went on to ask him what Country he was with and he smiled and looked a little helpless...he struggled out enough words to explain that he didn't know any English, but he went on talking and smiling to Isabella. I was just so touched by this, here is a guy so far away from his own country and knows nothing of the language, but he used what few words he knew to talk to my little girl :)

A beautiful baby smile is the same in any language. :)
