If you go to UVU, you have probably seen the sweet old man walking around school in his tattered clothes and a HUGE smile on his face. I have seen him around for the past year and a half. He is brave and talks to anyone in his path. I admire him as I have watched him shower people with compliments. People he doesn't know, anyone & everyone! Who is this guy? He is sincere and you can feel it even being 10 feet away from him. He is so kind and people are always leaving his presence with a slight smile or an ENORMOUS smile. 
Today was my turn.
What a blessing it was to be in his path.

He came right up to me, told me to smile, showered me with compliments and looked me right in the eye the entire time.
He said, "I hope I made you feel good." and shook my hand.
Then he left. 

I was a victim of exactly what I had observed for months leading up to this moment. 

Sure enough, I walked away with a smile on my face and I am still feeling good.

Thanks mystery man. I really appreciate your kindness and example!
