Why can’t people be this nice all year around?

Over the past week whenever I have passed anyone I have said, ‘Merry Christmas’, and now ‘Happy, healthy New Year’.  People actually answer me back, with a similar comment.

When I am walking the beach any other month, I say ‘Good morning/afternoon/evening/Hello/Hi, and lucky if I get a third of people acknowledge me.  Some may be tourists, and don’t understand what I am saying, but a smile would be nice.

My wish for 2019 is that people will be kinder to each other.  If you know someone that lives on their own, phone them occasionally, or knock on their door.  Make an effort to keep in touch with friends, and family.

Give a friend a hug, we so often need them, and a smile on a face, is the best gift that we have to give.
