Re: I smiled because...

At one point today, I was wandering around a hospital looking for a chapel. Just as I lifted my eyes to take in my surroundings, I ran into a Fransiscan monk in a flowing brown robe and gold tassels (I had never seen one). He took both my hands in his without saying a word.
And so I smiled

Then tonight I was telling my sister-in-law that I was feeling confused and that my mind was in a jumble, just now.
5 minutes later I had to call back home and I dialed the wrong number. Somebody answered:

Hello, this is Behavioral Help, can we help you ?

I burst into peals of helpless giggles.
And so I laughed

Even when it is dark, there is love, there is mercy and there is somebody with an excellent sense of humor

Re: I smiled because...

My tram pulled up precisely as I arrived at the stop.

The tram was packed and the only seat left was next to a HOT chick.

At her stop she left her umbrella on her chair...... and with my best German "Entschuldigen" I got her attention and handed it back.

Before she got off the tram, she stopped, looked back over her shoulder and gave me a little wink and smile

..... great start to the day !!!

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because despite of my friend leaving CH after her 4 yr mission here, we were happy running around the Divonne lake, looking at all the spring flowers, snow drops and yellow crocuses every where.

I am longing to see spring flowers. If the melting continues I may see the lawn in one month, for now the only croci that I have are in indoor pots.
I smiled because CNN just had an American Nuclear expert with an Iranian accent sharing his expertise on the Japan crisis.
My biggest smile for me this week is being out with my daughter home from college, watching men turn their heads when she swans into a place.

Re: I smiled because...

I smiled because one of my employees told me he was going to miss my management style after I've gone to Switzerland.
