I just caught the shop for beer before I had to walk further to the nearest 24 hour shop.
New girl working there, maybe 15 years younger than me, big genuine smile, asked how my day was, I replied with a smile and enjoyed a few seconds of chit chat conversation.
Made the purchase, she put my change in my hand and then cupped it from below with her other hand, softly stroking my knuckles as we let go.
Our eyes smiled at each other and I wished her a beautiful night when it ends.
Earlier on today I had some guy swearing angrily at me while I was working, then he later apologised and offered me his hand to shake, to which I held with my other hand as well and genuinely made friends after he'd explained his head space.
That made me smile as well
Share your smiles here if you like, I can't guarantee my thread management tonight but I'd love to smile at your stories.
Digital media can certainly enhance the real world community.
