Ya know what's contagious????

'A big, ol' smile'!! (Direct quote from Dr. Cox on Scrubs..haha :)

Let me start my story at the beginning!!  I went to get my hair trimmed today (yay!).  But got stuck in traffic on the way home (boo!!).  Then I got on the freeway going NORTH to where we used to live instead of SOUTH to where we now live!!  You'd think I'd quit doing that...but I don't.  So, a trip that should've been a 15-20 minute drive took me, um, well, AN HOUR!!

So, I finally got home.  And the guilt strikes!!  My poor doggy, she only got a short walk this morning, she's been stuck in the house..I feel so bad!  So, I fanangled into my runnin' shoes and coat, and got the bouncing (quite literally) puppy out the door.  I was gonna' walk myself down to Beans n' Brews and get myself a tasty treat!

The first 5 minutes of the walk I grumbled a bit..dumb, cold weather..stop sniffing so much, silly dog..yadda, yadda, yadda (Seinfeld fans, anyone?).  But then, I started noticing how many smiles, and waves, and 'hiyas' I was getting..and ya know what?  I started smiling too :)  Then the girl at B&B gave me my drink for free 'cause 'she felt like it', and my dog was cute!  Wow!  People are nice.  They really are..and I would now like to pass on to all y'all a big, ol' SMILE!!

Thanks for that fun little story. It is so true about smiles. That is one of the things I remember most about my mom. She always always said hi to everyone she passed and smiled. You never know how that small gesture can turn someones day or life around. When you have a moment read about Rachel Scott. She was killed in the Columbine shooting. Her smile changed kids' lives. It still is today even though she is not around. Here is the website, http://www.rachelschallenge.com/. So thanks for the smile. It made my day better. Luv ya

You are fun! I like this post. Always neat to hear how one turns a frown upside down! I had one of those today too...set my alarm for 6:15 PM instead of AM, ran around like a wild woman to take my daughter to school by 8:25, ran out to the car to find out we had a flat tire! Oye! Gotta love it. But the great thing is, I won something online! Made up for it ALL! Hope you have a great thanksgiving. I'll be back!
