365 Reasons to Smile – Day 38
I was checking out at the grocery store the other day when the clerk’s head suddenly shot up. She seemed to attentively listen for a minute then broke into a broad grin.
“That sounds just like my grand baby,” she said.
Up to that point, I’d been oblivious to the high-pitched screech coming from one of the aisles.
“How old is your grandchild?” I asked.
“She’s turning two today,” the clerk said. “And she is quite the handful.”
Despite her words, the smile on her face indicated that the little girl brought her nothing but joy, and her enthusiasm made me light up too.
There is absolutely nothing like witnessing people enjoy their grandchildren.
That always makes me smile.
