It was a bitterly cold and windy day, so we decided to go and get our shop on at the world's largest retailer.
From the moment we entered the store, we were greeted with a smile and a friendly hello from the official store greeter.
We began browsing the aisles, chatting and laughing as we shopped.
The happy feel good vibe seemed to be contagious.
It was almost as if everyone else in the store was feeling it too because as we looked around, the other shoppers were grinning and smiling at us and it felt like some were even laughing with us as we walked away.
I guess the idea of two good friends having a good time has that effect on other people.
With the all bargians and low prices at Walmart, it was hard not to be completely giddy about the savings we got that day.
We continued on shopping but noticed were attracting more and more people, giggling and smiling so we decided to return the favor, giggling and smiling right back. We said hearty hello's and good afternoon's to everyone we encountered. The idea that a simple smile could spread so much kindness was intoxicating and it made our shopping trip a most enjoyable one.
Maybe it was the sunny yellow dress I was sporting that afternoon because they say that wearing a happy color can influence your mood and the mood of those around you. If this is the case, then I wish I could bottle the positive effect my yellow dress had on everyone. I'd be rolling in the dough.
I can't really say for sure what it was about that day, but the good karma gods were certianly smiling right along with us and it was great!
We wanted to remember the feeling and our magical shopping trip so my friend snapped this picture of me in my happy yellow dress as we were checking out so we would be able to look back and re-live that moment in time. Look closely and feel the power of a happy ending!
Remember, a smile is just a frown turned upside down!
Make someone smile today! Happy Friday!! :)
