I don’t get to Hollywood very often but I am here tonight. I can definitely tell I’m in a big city.
I just walked by a man, we made eye contact and said hello to each other. He was a homeless man and all he could say was, “thank you, I really appreciate that smile you just gave me”. I agreed, it really is amazing how much a small smile can do for someone in need.
He said, “Oh, you’d be surprised at how few smiles I get in this big city.”
So sad. I guess people have hardened themselves to street people–people who live on the street.
While some of them are a bit whacked out, some are just in need of some real interaction with a fellow human!
While the smile I gave him made him very appreciative, it made me feel pretty special too. Win Win!
So, if you get a chance, look somebody, anybody, in the eye today, give ’em a smile and you just might make their day!
One thought on “A Smile”
T-Boz,I’m sending you a BIG SMILE of my own for you.
You’re right though,a smile is a very powerful weapon. I still try to utilize it. Sometimes I get one back and most other times it isn’t reciprocated and that’s ok too.
