I was in the grocery store yesterday, wandering in my own little world as I waited for #1-son to finish filling out the endless electronic job application, and grumbling about my life and my world, which in reality are just fine, but were really getting on my nerves yesterday…
and something caught my attention. I don’t even know what it was, but I looked up and there was a guy. I can’t even say what he looked like beyond medium-tall, nice-to-medium build (slightly baggy clothes), not too far from my age, medium-colored hair, and he wasn’t wearing a wedding ring… but what I will recognize for the rest of my life was his smile.
I don’t think I’ve ever been the recipient of a smile like that… a smile so deep and heart-felt that he seemed to glow from the inside out.
Over the years, a lot of people have smiled at me, but… damn! Never before have I even thought about a smile the next day, let alone still been effected by it. His smile, just for that moment, still makes me feel… like… Wow!
I read enough paranormal and metaphysical stuff to believe we aren’t alone. And read enough experiences of people encountering benevolent beings– angels, if you will– and experienced enough weird stuff of my own, to not be shook at the idea that he might have been an angel… for never have I encountered a human smile like that.
But–damn!– if he was a real guy… please universe … I want to meet him again and if nothing else, I’d like to have him smile at me one more time.
