I was at physical therapy.
There was an older woman finishing up her appointment.
She had one of the standard old white lady perms.
Her hair was dyed purple, fading.
She had on a grey long-sleeved T-shirt with an emerald green short-sleeved T-shirt over it which read BE HAPPY in white letters.
And shiny silver high-top shoes.
(I don’t remember her pants beyond that she was wearing some.)
We exchanged a smile and a hello.
Before she left, she said she had something for me.
She said that “be happy” was her motto and that she liked to give these out, and she handed me a glass stone with a smiley face sticker on it.
As quirky and lovely as she was.
So today, I electronically pass it on to you.
I hope you’re having a good day, and if not, you can find a little something good in it anyway.
