Smile!



"If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love.  Don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning 'Good morning' at total strangers."

Made me smile immediately that I saw it!
Great quote/advice.
I remember my mother yelling rather harshly at my brothers and me(though I think I was the culprit) and how it looked like we weren't going on an anticipated outing. Then the phone rang and the minister's wife persona kicked in. I remember the amazement I felt as she switched tones and demeanor. It was like she had become a different person. But she was in a better mood when she got off the phone and we got to go after all.

Amen sister!

People that aren't much of an animal lover don't believe they smile. Not many believe me when I say my dogs smile. Well, here's the proof that our 4-legged friends are probably happier and smilier than we are. :)

So true. I smile like a loon at everyone. Well, usually. Sometimes I scowl but never without good reason.
