What Will Make You Smile?

So we all have those days where we just simply need a lift.

Is there something that will always put a smile on your face and - for at least that moment- wash your cares away?

One thing that always makes me smile is this:

I enjoy have a semi-serious conversation with children of any age.

I am always amazed at how they handle themselves when they have their game face on, it makes me smile and gives me hope.

I also enjoy tossing a quarter on the sidewalk or in the park and watching the reaction of the person that finds it!

Kids will do it every time. I was riding the bus the other morning. Driver was boarding a handicap person, so the stop was extra long. The folks in the corner yard had carved out a Huge Pumpkin and had their munchkin sitting inside it taking pictures for Halloween. The little kid discovered some "strings and goo" and was happy to play with it. Now, as if the photo op wasn't cool enough, it was the expression on the parents faces when the kid started rubbing stuff around that set me over the edge. A surprise within a surprise they weren 't expecting.
