Jacob and his super smile.
A smile and a giggle, a big grin over his little mouth and than his little hand starts to wave with excitement. It's not just one "Hi" but at least a couple of repeated "Hi's" when the other person responds back. He seems well aware of the reaction he gets from this and the smiling is totally catching when I see his little face light up. I'm amazed by the innocence of it all in a simple greeting from a child to make one forget about their day for a moment and give back with a smile and a hello.
For my son, his world revolves around our family and as he gets more adventurous and confident he will meet new people and make new friends. Just a simple greeting of hello and an infectious smile and he's made a connection and I think we can learn alot by watching our children to remind us how simple it is to start each day with
a big Hi!
