    When is the last time you said "Good Morning!" to a stranger and meant it? Or better yet How Are You Doing Today? Trouble is now that we asked the question or made the statement aren't we suppose to listen to the response...??

    When I say good morning or ask someone how they are I actually mean it and would love to hear a reply on how they are. it could be an opening to share the good news with that person.

    I say it to strangers every day. Of course I wish them a good morning and care about how they are doing.

      It does feel good when we care about our fellow man. I am glad you feel that way too.

    Whats funny about this is I will say it to some people who I catch eyes with in a store or walking down the street and I have to say about 5 times outa 10 they will just look back at me like ooh where you talking to me lol. Seems like it is not common practice around where I live yet I still say it. Who knows you could really turn someones bad day into a good one.
    So have a great day everyone big_smile

      You are so right my friend smiles are contagious. So don't give up (approach determines response.) You are a leader...

    I would not say good morning to someone if I didn't mean it.

    When I am out and about I say good morning to strangers and mean it. I do the same with dogs cats and birds, so I will admit to being a little eccentric about my good mornings! smile Good morning, afternoon or evening to all my fellow hubbers. smile
