This morning my friend Mark contacted me on Skype. It went like this:
Mark: hello, where have you been?
Miriam: I have been sleeping, and I went walking last weekend with the kids. not really far away. How are you?
Mark: I am ok, hot here now trying to stay cool
I see your photo and it makes me smile
you have so much natural beauty
no need for make up
Miriam: thank you, that makes me smile, I am not feeling that beautiful today…
Mark: you are perfect
you remind me of a roman goddess
for some reason
Miriam: oh dear, this is turning into a nice conversation Mark. thank you for all your compliments and yes I never use make up
Miriam: a roman goddess? i had not seen that line yet, wow.
Mark: hahahaha I got some good ones
This made me smile. Sometimes smiles come from little remarks. How about we all make a nice remark to someone today? I know I will return the favor. How about you?
