Walking down an alley, I saw this request on a neighbor’s backyard fence.
So, I complied.
I smiled and immediately felt better.
I felt a connection with my neighbor or whoever wrote this.
The neighborhood felt less lonely.
A simple smile
In February I had to get up at 2 A.M. to catch an early shuttle to the airport.
I deaded hearing the alarm go off and staggering around to get ready.
Then I had an idea.
I put a sign on my bathroom counter that I would see first thing.
It read, “Remember to smile!”
I did smile and immediately I felt awake and excited about my upcoming trip to see my Grandson Aiden.
Just changing mental gears made my day of travel much better.
PS. I am glad that I went in February as I have no idea when I will see Aiden and his family again.
