I went bowling this morning and a lady was bowling next to me-very well I might add, and I'm not so bad myself. You know how competition can be and it seemed she was getting more fierceful with each throw. She never looked right at me until she threw a gutter ball. I smiled at her and said "Oh my, you know its ok-your doing so great!!"
She finished her game and left me with encouraging words, "You keep up the good work yourself-I'll be seeing you on t.v. :)"
I smiled again!
"How many times have we walked by someone on the street or in a hallway and instead of saying hello we pretend we don't see them? The truth is that all of us, deep down inside, have a need to be seen, acknowledged and appreciated. We are on a spiritual journey that can at times be very lonely. And one of the simplest and most effective ways to help our fellow traveler is to smile and say hello."~
