I was having a bad day yesterday. A really bad day. Work was a mess, I was having a pity party for myself, it was just no good.
After work, before picking up Liam, I decided to "treat myself" to a bottle of Coke at the gas station between work and daycare.
I was walking out of the QT, thinking about my day and stressing. A hispanic gentleman,in his 50's I guess, said "Hi" to me. I said "Hi" back. He said, "How are jou?" I said, "Fine" and fixed my eyes to the ground as I walked out to the car. He said, "Beautiful jou."
And that made me smile. Sure, it was a little strange, but it brightened my day.
It's amazing what a few nice words from a stranger can do to one's spirits.
