She Smiled at Me in Ethiopia

She smiled at me.



She smiled at me..... so today I can send you this smile from Ethiopia.


The I heart faces challenge this week is simply: Smiles. I have a load of amazing smile shots, especially of my little people who all have amazing smiles.  However, this shot of an Ethiopian girl out the window of my bus absolutely captures me for so many reasons. Brings me back to that moment when I was needing a smiling face out my window. Sadly, most the children that came to my bus window didn't share this smile.
She smiled at me...she exuded hope with this smile.       Smile today.
