A family scoping out the dollar section, both kids (aged about 11-13) trying on turkey hats. ....all smiles and laughter.......I smiled right back at them.
A young, frustrated mom with a 2-3 year old. Angry voiced and ordering...I heard the 1-2-3 loud and clear at least 4 times from the other side of the isle wall. Empty threats were made.....at every location I saw them. Angry voice and a near empty cart. .....put him in the cart, your angry voice won't be needed and maybe he will see his mommy smile from there......I wanted to say.
A gentleman on a cell phone greets the person on the other end with "Hello, love of my life! I just found something....." .....I smiled as I wandered away thinking of my own Mr.
Another young mom with a little one, closely supervising him inspect picture frames. The language was gentle but firm.... "Be careful please, we must be gentle with things that can break." ......careful, positive instruction warms my heart.
Two separate women on an ear-bud type phone....talking loudly. ......both make me chuckle.....I wonder if they realize how crazy they appear.
I wandered with a smile on my face. Each person whose eye I met received a smile just for them. Some seemed a bit befuddled and others lit up with their own.
A smile. It is a free gift to the world that keeps on giving.
Blessings to you for miles of smiles that emanate from within and pass on the blessing to others.
