You might ask, "What's in the air?"
Is it pollin? Or maybe that four letter word L O V E? Or holiday cheer?
I woke up this morning in a rotten mood. I had not slept well, needed to help my brother work through the complications of credits for tech support that hadn't supported his computer problems, and charges for the support that was good, and then deciding on a new computer since the final answer was that the mother board on his old computer had thrown craps. (How's that for a run-on sentence...) Never mind the fact that I thought my own lap top had died. Yet when I took it in to have it looked at it booted up just fine. I get it back tomorrow, having opted to have some maintenance done on the ol' gal.
So what is in the air? Well, I'm convinced this blustery day blew KINDNESS my way. It was in the air all around me. Even though I was a grumpy gus, everybody else was smiling, patient, holding doors, saying "have a good day", and just generally being nice! I couldn't help but be nice back. By the time I got home this afternoon, I actually had a smile on my face and was humming a tune.
So tomorrow when I wake up in a good mood (instead of the bad mood of today), I'm going to remember to share my smile with the first grumpy gus I run across. Because I was reminded today what I already knew, smiles are contageous. I might even hold open a door or two.
