Wish Cast Wednesday

First of all, thank you for the comments so far on my giveaway! You guys don't half make me look silly in a silent library this afternoon reading blogs, laughing and snorting at a computer screen! I had to leave in the end before I was "escorted" out. I was freaking out the toddlers story time posse. Sorry.

Jamie asks us today How do you wish to shine? I wish to shine by spreading a wee bit of happiness to at least one person every day even if it is just a smile or a laugh.
I was walking down to the local shops recently when the streets were alive with people walking and skipping about, their (and mine)heads bursting with thoughts of to do lists, shopping and the dreaded credit card bills in the hustle and bustle of the Christmas rush. As I walked past people, a number of them acknowledged me by a nod of the head, a smile or a hello there! Or on the flip side, maybe it was me who did not notice before. It made me very happy. Just the simple gesture of hello. It cost nothing and was lovely and I want to shine by spreading the happiness!

Hello! How how you today?

As Clairedulalune wishes for herself, I wish for her as well. It is such a nice feeling when someone acknowledges you with a smile or a nod. Just think how many people you will make happy as you shine.

As Clairedulalune wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. I loved my small college because of that tendency to acknowledge people as they passed... it really makes you feel good to be recognized as a fellow human bean!

Hi Claire, you've shined today - made me smile and laugh, so a double binger!

I've been away from Blogland way too long! So glad to see you're still there! Will gradually catch up with all that I missed over a few mugs of coffee and more than a few bars of chocolate :o)
