I went shopping today, and apart from the sale of clothes, its business as usual. Before christmas we saw lots of lights, trees and loveliness. Its drab now, the decorations turned off, taken down, and packed away for another year; and with them appears to have gone the smiles, freindliness and warm feelings. How soon people forget!!!!!
In the run up to the festive season, people stopped and said hello. Everyone was nice, and in a jolly mood. Now its over, the grumpiness is back. I know its a bore to go back to work, do the shopping and stay happy, but shouldn’t we try? A smile costs nothing, and could mean so much for the old chap who never speaks to anyone. A word of greetings can make a person feel happy.
Today, lets try to remember those around us, and spread some cheer instead of gloom 🙂
