"We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do."
~ Blessed Mother Teresa
The other morning I was in a drive thru line buying a dozen doughnuts (no, they weren't all for me). The man who took my order was quite friendly as I listened to him through the speaker. When I got to the window, he handed me the box and with a smile said, "Thank you young lady, here are your 11 and 3/4 doughnuts. (Get it? He was insinuating he took a bite of one). I cannot tell you how much this made my day. Of course the comment about my youth may have helped, but regardless his comment put a smile on my face every time I thought of him and his simple joke. Hopefully I was able to pass that joy on to someone else. Who knows, maybe he unknowingly created a ripple effect of smiles this week. Blessed Mother Teresa would be pleased, and my guess is that she cetainly knows now all the good a simple smile can do.
