1. Bonjour-Hi Eric! ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a French saying, here is the word by word translation:”be kind and smile, it’s free, it doesn’t cost you anything, but it may bring you back a lot!” ๐Ÿ™‚ – I do agree… ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers, Mรฉlanie

    My very best and friendly thoughts from Toulouse, France, “old Europe”… ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Hello Melanie,

      Thank you for this visit and comment. As I replied to another comment – nothing new here but worth repeating, eh ๐Ÿ™‚

      All good wishes from sunny Singapore ๐Ÿ™‚
      P/s Your blog is in French, no ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. What a lovely way to pay it forward. My favorite lines “What of MY reward? Multiple fold of YOUR investment.”. If only we could all see that giving gets us more than wanting ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Well, the next time someone laments that (s)he does not have cash or time to spare – show her/him the way. Of course, after we’d first gone down that way ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜†


    1. Val dear,

      He who gives all of his little gives more than he who gives some of his all. So it is with smiles, I reckon and what a challenge that. The guy up there didn’t make it easy, did he ๐Ÿ™‚

      All good wishes and smiles ๐Ÿ˜€

  3. If frowning creates more folds than smiling, have to go for smiling then. Both are free but at least the latter costs less lines on the face..LOL.

    1. Jasey dearest,

      Yes, frowning causes more wrinkling than smiling – that ought to be good enough reason to replace frowns with smiles ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜†

      Luv and hugz,

  4. smiles are free and magical , it can make someone’s day … it’s a pity not all people smile at each other , our world would be much more friendly, me think.
    Have a good week too, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I have sometimes waved at people from our car as I passed them. Usually they just look sometimes and smile back. I don’t know why I’ve done this. Maybe they looked friendly.

    1. Hmmm, this I don’t usually do – unless at the traffic lights and I catch someone’s eyes – then yes, flash a smile ๐Ÿ™‚

      Wave at people – haven’t tried that yet.


  6. Eric you posted this right after I was out with Mr. Hubby shopping all day. I love to smile at people and most find it too much to smile back, I had commented to him while out that maybe everyone was in a bad mood? I should take this post you made print it and hand them out!

    1. LOL – handing out flyers ๐Ÿ™‚

      I know what you mean dearie.

      Every evening I go out for a walk or jog or bicycle ride. Some women think I’m trying to get fresh and they glare at me. Some men simply glare back. Then, there are others who smile back, nod and even say “hello” – this latter group keeps me going.

      Perhaps I should hand out flyers too ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes, it is.

      I try to do so everyday but fail miserably with some people. It is tough coming across the same person, offering a smile and receiving a blame stare in return.


I like to hear your thoughts
