Thought for the day….

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 5th day of October, 2013.

It is a beautiful day as the sun comes up in our fair city.

I had the most wonderful experience at the store last night.

As you know I work part-time at Bath & Body Works, West Edmonton Mall location.

I met so many wonderful people as I usually do but there was this one young couple that stood out.

Something drew me to them most especially the young man.

His smile was engaging and I could literally feel his warmth.

Honestly it felt like a magnet was pulling me closer and closer to him.

I did my “thing” and we also chatted.

We had a couple of laughs.

I told him “how cute he was and that he had the best smile.”

We kept talking and shopping.

Something about this couple made me feel so great.

Especially the young guy and he did remind me of my brother Jeff (who has passed on).

I was so grateful that he allowed me to compliment him without it being awkward or creepy.

Anyway you just never know when you are going to meet someone who makes you feel so warm and wonderful.

It was only a few minutes but man it was great.

You just never know who you will meet in the course of a day.

I did tell the couple that I always think it is important to pass on compliments even to strangers.

We are all human and hearing nice things is a good thing.

Well time to go and start my Saturday.

My daughter will be here shortly with the puppies.

She is coming for a sleepover (we have not done that for a long time).

So much fun.

Oh and Mr. Alvin will be home ….. he is sleeping over there.

Pay compliments when they are due.

Be honest and nice.

Life is meant to share and be wonderful.

Happy Saturday.

Special Hello to: strangers who warm your heart…….


Always, Carol and Alvin
