Toddler’s Sweet Gesture At Supermarket Spreads Happiness To Shoppers

A little girl named Joey may only be 16 months old, but she is already spreading joy to people of all ages in a heartwarming video. 

Joelle Hicks was filmed by her mother, Caitlin, happily wandering around an Arkansas supermarket and waving at as many people as she could.

The tiny tot confidently went right over to strangers and spread her love- even hugging one woman. Joey waves to a man on a mobility scooter, an employee, and a female customer. “She’s waving to everybody,” a woman is heard saying.

Then, Joey waves at a woman by the meat counter, who fails to notice her, but she soon makes her way to another woman who is thrilled to see her. “Hi again, how are you?” she asks.

Instead of replying, Joey extends her arms for a hug and the woman is happy to embrace her.
