You Smile ~ I Smile

An Old dude (wearing plenty of Navy memorabilia) walks up to me with that,
                                                                  "I know you, but you don't recognize me"
look on his face.
Old Men are not required to be politically correct, so he straight up asks,
"Do you know who I am?"
"A veteran in the Navy?" I state.

He chuckles, reminds me of his name. He had come to church with my family when I was a little girl but I hadn't seen him in years.

"You should smile more", he says.
RUDE! I thought
"Your whole face lights up when you smile, your smile is just beautiful"

And so I smiled while I picked out my bananas, and I smiled in spite of the fact that the price of zucchini had doubled, and smiled as I checked out after a fanatical coupon lady.

Thanks Old Dude for reminding me to SMILE even when I am feel like a haggard mama.


  1. It's amazing how much of an impact a smile has. A smile draws in happy people.

    I hope you had a smile while watching some videos on my blog/site :)
