Well folks, it is that time of year again...and personally I look forward to it. The scent of cinnamon and ginger waft through my head, and my anticipation increases. I am very thankful for many many gifts I have in my life. My family, health, friends, cat, just to name a few. It is all good(actually, it is great). Although there are days when I temporarily "forget" about being so thankful, and fall down. It is love that brings me back up, and I am very thankful about that.
I happen to enjoy talking with people whom I have never met before. My sweet husband jokes that when we go out to a public environment, I can meet someone in record time. He will step away for a few minutes, and lo and behold when he returns, I am chatting with someone. It is heart-warming for me. I love to give a compliment to someone as I walk by them.
Whether it's a woman's purse or shoes, or an elderly gentleman's tie, it's
all the same, and done with sincerity. My eyes and heart twinkle when I see a smile. It's love. And I believe love is
what we are here for.
So, in the days and weeks that follow, if I may suggest taking the time to see the people in front of you, behind you and to the side of you. A smile or nod to someone can make someone's day. And wouldn't you be glad you did?
