Kindness is Universal

As I sat at a street side café enjoying my lunch in Anápolis, Brazil, a woman with a small child motioned to me to share my table. With a nod and a smile I welcomed my new guests.  I blend in here so they have no clue that if they spoke to me I would have no idea what they were saying. The language of kindness and humanness needs no interpretation. It is universal. In the exchange of smiles and enjoyment of our food between us I tried my best not to speak and let on that I was not a local.

I batted my lashes at that youngster, who chuckled trying to duplicate my rapid eyelid movement.

And then it happened. She spoke to me and I had to say “No Portuguese.” A look of surprise washed over her face and we both smiled, then laughed out loud as we tried to communicate with each other.

As I write this, I sit here thinking about that love shared between two Earthly sisters from different parts of the world and that a smile goes a long way.

Have a day filled with love from your eat pray love girl,
