Driving down the road, I see quite a few people with signs asking for handouts. I'm accustomed to seeing them now.
But, today, there was a man with a sign that said, in big letters, "SMILE!"
He waved the sign and gave me a big smile himself as I drove by. I couldn't help but smile back - it was so infectious!
I know some people don't like to be told to smile, but this wasn't offensive. It really was impossible not to smile back! And, it really showed how a smile from someone can make another person's day and put a smile on their face, too.
It was so great!
It also made me smile, because today was my birthday, so it was like a special "happy birthday" to me.
