imageimageimageimageMAKE A RIPPLE TODAY!  YESTERDAY I WAS GETTING A BLOOD TEST FOR MY ANNUAL PHYSICAL. WHILE WAITING I WATCHED AN ELDERLY MAN MAKE A RIPPLE. HE WAS USING A CANE AND WELL KNOWN TO THE PHLEBOTOMIST BECAUSE OF HIS HEALTH PROBLEMS. STILL HE WAS A HAPPY MAN. HE TALKED TO EVERYONE IN THE WAITING AREA. HE RECOGNIZED A MAN HE HAD NOT SEEN IN TWENTY YEARS. DURING THEIR CONVERSATION I LEARNED THEY HAD BOTH BEEN TEACHERS AND RETIRED FROM THE SAME SCHOOL DISTRICT. THE CONVERSATION ALSO REVEALED THE HAPPY MAN’S WIFE,  A RETIRED TEACHER WAS SUFFERING FROM BONE CANCER. THE BOTTOM LINE MR. HAPPY, PROVIDED INSPIRATION AND A SMILE FOR EVERYONE IN THE WAITING AREA INCLUDING ME. HE OBSERVED HE HAD, HAD A GOOD RETIREMENT. HE IS 80 AND HIS FELLOW TEACHER WAS 84……I WAS THE KID IN THE ROOM! WHAT A GREAT RIPPLE HE LEFT!

I left determined to make a RIPPLE myself! My next stop was to get a haircut. I had a very fun conversation with the young lady cutting my hair. I put a smile on her face. When I paid I gave her a rather large tip and said that was prepayment for putting a smile on each of her customers face before they left. I explained it would make her happy, surely get her more tips but most importantly, those customers would leave and put a smile on the face of others. THE RIPPLE EFFECT! GIVE IT A TRY!
