I was on Facebook (of course) and noticed my friend Lisa Shaw posted this:
Sitting in the waiting room again for my daughter's physical therapy from the accident and FINALLY someone I can relate to....a woman with a warm smile says, "Good morning everyone". Ahh I love people like that! On this rainy, cool early morning our smiles and greetings brought sunshine in. If you know me then you know I'm big on smiles and lovin' on people. :) blessings all!!
It's amazing that something so simple can infect an entire room of people.
I thought of George. He was a man with a contagious smile. George died in 2003 but I smile every time I think of this man. He always had a smile on his face.
Every year for my birthday George called me and sang "happy birthday". If Greg answered the phone, he'd talk to him and then ask if he could sing to me. Btw, George was an elderly man from my church.
At George's funeral, Pastor Dan mentioned that George liked to call people on their birthdays. He asked how many of us had been blessed by George's singing. Almost the entire audience raised their hand. Then Pastor Dan asked how many of us thought we might be the only one George called each year to sing to. We all laughed as most of us again raised our hand.
I want to be like George. How lovely to be able to light up and relax a group of people with a simple smile.
I found the vinyl decal in the photo on Pinterest. I'm thinking of buying it to put on my bathroom wall as a reminder each morning. I may not like all I see when I look in the mirror these days but a smile can make a difference.
Btw, Lisa Shaw has one of the best smiles I've seen. Having the pleasure of meeting this gal in person, I can say that her smile can light up any room.
Blessings and love,
