:) Now there's a beautiful smile!

Posted on Tue, Feb 2, 2010 at 3:45 PM

To the homeless or not so homeless guy thats in front of tim hortons on spring garden road. You are my favorite "beggar" around. I don't think I have ever heard you ask for money - you like to see people smile :). As people walk by I hear you say "have a wonderful day miss" or "lets see that smile!!" and when someone does smile, "now there's a beautiful smile! have a wonderful day". Its these kind of people that we need more of. A simple smile can brighten anyones day, and sometimes, you never know just how much that one smile meant to someone. There were uncountable times this past summer I NEVER felt like smiling, with the loss of my common law partner, I was having a hard time smiling, but as soon as I went to get a coffee and bagel from timmys and heard you ask me where my smile was, simply made my day. Thanks :)
