A neat thing happened to me today. I was walking into the local grocery store right at the same time that a woman was entering to return her cart. I smiled and let her pass. After she put the cart away, she stopped me and thanked me for smiling. Really? Yup, she did. She said that everyone she encountered today was frowning, and it was so nice to see someone smiling for a change. And she said I have a nice smile. 🙂

That got me thinking.    I could have been grumpy too.  Today was my first day back to work after a week’s vacation, and the day was jammed packed with things to do.  I’m still dealing with Spotacus’ kidney disease diagnosis yesterday.  I was walking into the grocery store with no idea what I was going to make for dinner tonight.  But it never occurred to me to not smile as my path crossed with that woman’s.  I smile.  I say hello.  I hold doors and elevators open for people.  It’s the courteous way to live life.

This video popped up in my wordpress reader today.  Thank you to Kathryn Roubidoux for sharing it.  It made me happy.  I hope it brightens up your day and brings a smile to your face. 🙂
