Christmas Smiles

A bad attitude is like a dirty diaper. No one likes to be around it, but everyone wants to see it changed!

Yesterday we had some errands to run in the afternoon and I had all the kids with me. So, I challenged them with this little experiment. I told them to keep track of how many people they could get to smile back at them. Well, the drive-thru bank lady never even looked at us. So, our next stop was Costco gas. The girl pumping gas just wouldn't smile and she was "short" with me. You could tell she did not want to be out in the cold and wet working. Well, the kids started knocking on the windows and waving "hi" to her. She melted. It was amazing to see how her whole personality changed. She went from being JUST there to do her job to a friendly laughing overly nice person. She was waving and laughing with the kids and talking to them. The kids kept this up everywhere we went. We saw tired looking shoppers perk up when the kids shared a smile with them.

You never know who you might "melt", share a smile today!
