Even Just A Smile
The best thing for me these days is when my customers come see me and greet me with a hug and a smile. Although not all of them know about where my hearts been, just the gesture helps make my day a lot better. One day I will never forget, however, was a few weeks ago, I was sitting at Lovers Point on my favorite bench, with incontrollable tears. Several people walked by and didn't say anything, didn't even look towards me. I wasn't expecting it, I was there to be alone anyway. But I remember one man, probably in his late thirties, early forties, stopped and looked at me. I looked up at him and all he said was that everything was going to be alright. He smiled and walked off. His smile brought me warmth and somehow a feeling of contentment. I was able to dry my eyes and watch the ocean for a while, without the tears.
