My husband，Bob，is a pilot，and one day we were invited to a potluck (百味餐) at his flying squadron(飞行中队). The noisy room was filled with mouthy kids and their chatting moms and dads. Our son，Daniel, was only two years old. We let him play with the other kids because it was a safe environment.
After a while，he came back with a package of peanut butter crackers and proudly held them out to us. A pilot who asked “Do you know whose this little boy is?”followed him.
“He is mine,” I answered, wondering what Daniel might have done.
“Well,” replied the pilot, “I’ve been passing out crackers to the kids for almost two hours，and your son is one of the youngest guys I gave them to. He’s the only one who said ‘Thank you’. What he did makes me pleased.”
