Chance Encounter

Met a Spanish gentleman today who makes a habit of greeting everyone he comes across with great gusto and is amused by the reactions of most people to his obvious invitation of friendship. He believes it takes very little to greet people rather than just to nod or pass them by. It is something which so many people, including myself, often forget to do.
I really like his outlook on life ~ very positive, very sure of who he is and what the purpose of his life is. He handed out many pearls of wisdom in my short encounter with him this morning, making me think quite differently about things!

  1. Love that attitude. Too often we pass people by. It is wonderful to see what a change you can make by simply looking at people when you talk with them, by smiling and showing you have actually noticed them!
