Having grown up in a small town where you knew everyone and were related to many, saying hello was just part of the general atmosphere. I left that small town many years ago but never quite lost the habit of a smile and at least a nod to impart a "Howdy" to those whose eyes I meet. I wish more folks could let go of their apprehensions and spread a little sunshine on their fellow man each day. It would surely be a better world all around.

I had a nice chat this week with a women who lived in Virginia for a few years. She said that she had to leave extra time when planning an errand to account for inevitable conservations with people. She built it into her schedule. However, here, where we are anonymous most of the time, we have to account for strangers. And a nod and a "howdy" takes no time at all. Keep spreading that sunshine, Crystal!

Great article Ruth I say hello to everyone and I noticed even if their head is down when they are walking they will say hello and look at me

Candee: It is fun to watch a person's face light up with just one simple word. And thanks for stopping by the blog to say hello, too.

'Write-On'; I love it! Especially these days as an older person who might likely slip into the background of a younger generation - I just love it when I smile and look into the eyes of a stranger. They always say,"hello" and sometime even pause to acknowledge it made a difference. I believe every moment counts and everything happens for a reason - we could possibly be the only positive influence in the day for another simply by caring enough to smile.....Great beginning! Please continue feeding us with encouragement. Joy
