A smile for everyone

The San Antonio Express News ran an interesting article on Labor Day that got me thinking about how some people forget to give people a smile to the check out clerk at the grocery store, the waitress at the local restaurant and others in the service industry.

Having spent some time in those industries, I have never forgotten how people with a simple smile and than you made me want to do more for them. And, there are a lot of folks who have written positive things about the impact of sharing a smile.

I learned a long time ago from my father the impact of a positive smile when asking for help or assistance. And, even when I don't need something, a positive grin sure goes a long way.
