Biggest Impressions

After a long day of handling an assortment of problems and tasks, I found myself wandering the aisles of the supermarket just before it was about to close.     I placed the articles on the conveyor belt..and noticed the cashier ...."Hi!" she said with a big smile..."find everything you want?".....I  politely nodded back at her..... She quickly rang up and bagged the few items...and smiling she said.."have a nice night". I smiled back at her refreshing politeness.

     As I walked back to my car I mused.........a smile, a kind word, a small gesture that breaks the icyness that this world creates.....My! How lifes smallest gestures can make the biggest impressions!  This brief encounter with a store cashier, had placed a new twist on an otherwise difficult day.

So to all of you who have a smile to give.......and a kind word to spare....spead em never know whose day you will make!


 Smiling........Marc :)

I had the nicest person wait on me at the deli counter today!  And you're right - it only takes one smile to change a day :-) -Kelly

Isn't it nice to see a smile? Sometimes it is enough to make your day... particularly if your day hasn't been so nice!

I like to be the first one to say hello or smile at someone...especially if I can see they are the "grump"  I want to see if I can change their attitude.  It's a fun challenge!
