At my supermarket I noticed a woman with four boys and a baby.
Her patience was wearing thin as the boys called out "Mummy! Mummy! while she tried to shop.
Finally she blurted out, "I don't want to hear the word Mummy for at least ten minutes!"
The boys fell silent for a few seconds.
Then one tugged on his mother's dress and said softly,
"Excuse me, miss!"
I smiled all day remembering that conversation.
Hope something or someone made you smile today and vice versa.
"You've got to get up every morning with a smile on your face, And show the world all the love in your heart, Then people gonna treat you better, You're gonna find, yes you will, That you're beautiful as you feel".
~~ Carole King
