Answered prayer

Last Thursday evening, I lost my weekly travel card and spent time retracing my steps and searching for it but could not find it.

 

The following day Friday 13th, I went to the station and no one had handed  my ticket in.   As it was a weekly ticket the ticket person said it could not be replaced.  I had to just buy a day return for that day.

As I went on the train, I saw my friend Kathleen and explained what had happened and how gutted I felt as the ticket cost a lot. She told me that when she has lost things in the past, she would pray and just believe it would be found. So we prayed.

I spent the weekend looking again for the ticket but still couldn’t find it. I  went to the station on  Monday and explained my plight to the ticket person, he told me to go to the other platform and ask,  I was a bit reluctant as previously as his colleague had said my ticket was not their.

Anyhow I went to the other side and explained again what had happened, the ticket person asked my name and woohoo boom boom – my ticket had been found and handed him. I was so excited  I was screaming excitedly  to the amusement of the other commuters queuing up. #AnsweredPrayer

 

Spreading smiles on #WorldSmileDay

I woke up on world smile day Friday 6th October feeling positve and in a good mood ready to spread smiles to as many people as I could.

Things I did

  1. Smiling at  everyone I met on the road  whilst walking to the bus stop

2. On the bus I announced to the driver and some of the passengers that it was World Smile Day and this started the conversation about what makes you smile. I really enjoyed this, and as i left the bus i just said in aloud voice so everyone could hear  – Have a nice day – May the smile be with you – someone replied – and always with you. This made me smile.

3.Got some  ladies on the train to help me make my world smile day banner

4.  Enjoyed a chat and a hot drink with a friend

5. Talking  to people about world smile day and pictures of people smiling in the town centre where I live. #LoveGravesend

 

I hope you always have a a reason to smile

Be a world smile day ambassador #WorldSmileDay

On World Smile Day® 6th October,  the theme is “Do an act of kindness. Help one person smile!” expecially with so much negativity around at a time when some people are feeling insecure and uncertain about the future.

The story of world smile day

As is well known by now throughout the world Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet.

 

Harvey Ball created the smiley face. Harvey was concerned about  that the sheer commercialization of his little symbol would strip it of its original intent and meaning. It was out of this concern that he created World Smile Day, a day devoted to the spreading of simple joy and love to everyone, regardless of race, gender, or geographic location.

Harvey sadly passed from this world in 2001, but the foundation he helped create, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation, has carried forth his message of simple peace and love as the sponsor of World Smile Day every year. Whether you’re simply expressing a bit of silliness or doing a small act of kindness to help someone smile, World Smile Day is your opportunity to help brighten the world and make the world a better place through the simple power of the smile.

 

Everyone can make a difference on World Smile Day, just by being caring  and compassionate and helping those around them have the best day they  can have.

Smile even when someone does not smile back! #WorldSmileDAY

World Smile Day  is the First Friday of October each year and was created by Harvey Ball a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts who created the smiley face in 1963.

 Smile even when someone does not smile back!

Yesterday I went to a very uplifting event in London, and everyone looked happy and smiling, except one lady who just looked miserable. I made eye contact with her a few times, and she just seemed to stare at me as if to say “ oh for goodness sake stop smiling”. This really did bother me.

Think about it – Do you always smile back at people? If you don’t, then think about it. Chances are you’re thinking about something else, or are distracted or don’t even see them. Same with other people. Remember that most people are friendly by nature, but right at that moment when you smile at someone, you never know what’s really going on in their heads, so don’t think or worry about it.

Continue to smile, continue to say hello, and when someone does not respond in kind, go on and share the smile with someone else.

Go out and share a smile

In this world where there are a lot of people suffering, lonely, living on the edge, frustrated and having no purpose, the least we can do is to share a smile – smiling is contagious and when you share it with someone it can change their mood.
