Hello,how do you do?

Hello, how do you do?

How do you do? I hope you are well. I thought today I would finally say how are you? I have seen you across the street so many times and you have always flashed me a smile and never has a time passed that you have not acknowledged me. You make me feel precious and yes I look forward to every time that our paths cross even though we are strangers and never have exchanged a word.

Let me introduce myself to you. I am a lady in a place that I call home now. I was born in a family with people who love and encourage me.. Sometimes I feel so alone as this life’s hurdles are sometimes more than running a marathon. Yet every time you pass me by in the morning and you smile and wave at me I feel special. It makes me glad to be here and gives me the zeal to live to the fullest. I am feeling wonderful today because yesterday I almost thought of jumping from a bridge as I went through my own hell here on earth. Suddenly out of the darkness I saw your face and your smile. I smiled for a change because I actually thought you might miss me if you don’t see me Monday morning at 8 am. So I decided I will put this thought away. That’s why I thought today as I leave the house I will smile back at you, no actually I am going to say, hello how do you do? I am……. Would you become a friend?
