Adventures in Happiness: Sunshiney Yellow Dress

Today was picture day at school. I knew I needed to take a new picture for my work ID badge, and that this picture would be featured in our 'class picture.' (Note: we use to take a real class picture where we all stood in front of the trees, but now we are doing one of those compilation-headshot-class pictures, but I digress.)

I decided to wear my beautiful yellow Calvin Klein dress. I ♥ this dress. The moment I saw it, I knew I had to have it. So bought it. I mean, hello! How can this sunshiney yellow dress not make you smile?!? So, I wore it to school today, hoping it would help me keep a smile on my face for the day and every time I got to glance down at my new ID badge.

The dress did make me smile, and I had a good day at work. But, the best part of my day had nothing to do with school. It was a random chance encounter with a stranger.... as I was walking out of the grocery store, there was a woman in a truck who graciously waved me in front of her, so I could pass through the parking lot to my car. I smiled and waved as she let me pass, and slowly drove around me on the left. As I walked, I noticed her roll down her window. She said to me....
"That is the best dress ever! It is the perfect color; the yellow color is like sunshine! It looks great on you, it's so flattering with it's cute little belt. I love it! I absolutely love it! "

I smiled and said "Thank you. It is my favorite."

Random acts of kindness. We should all act out a little more.
