I order my usual morning coffee, the little girl on the counter gives me a big smile, ” Isn’t it a good day?”
I look around hurriedly, look at the shining May Sun, the heat, the perspiration, those dried out plants, and then..well.. I try to look at them once again.
I see a cheerful toddler ready to run in the sun. A lady in bright neon tank jogging on the pathway. An old man greeting his beaming friend, four hands expanding in the air, “After a long time! What a big surprise!”
I smile too. This one time.
“Yes, it’s a very good day!” I reply and add extra chocolate and cinnamon to my coffee.
Don’t have any reason to smile today? No worries.
Fellow blogger Eli, from Coachdaddyblog is asking “What Would Make You Smile, in 6 Words” and we all are sharing our own six words to make the smile wider. It’s a beautiful composition that I’ll reread on less bright days. There are more than 50 reasons right now.
So check Eli’s post, say hello, or just smile alone while sipping coffee and reading aloud. Anything is good today.
