After 15minutes a lady called me and said, “I saw you yesterday. Why do they ask you to join the queue again? She took the letter and registered it. I smiled and thanked her. I was never there before. In another episode I got to a mall and parking lot was full. As I passed the security guard I greeted him and smiled. He ushered me in to a VIP parking, and this was not about the car but my attitude, for according to Mother Theresa, peace begins with a smile. Being at peace is good for our health. In peace we laugh more, and laughter is medicine for the heart.
