“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”  ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

Eventhough today we are celebrating Share-A-Smile Day, why not allow this to be contagious and spill throughout every day of the year? Someone once said that a smile is just a frown turned upside down. A smile can be loving, reassuring, affirming and complimentary. Sometimes you can smile just because you are living and embracing all of the wonderful gifts God has placed before you!

So share a smile, not only today, but every single day of your life. When your heart is aching sometimes, find something to smile about, even if it is a special memory or a bird singing outside. In the midst of how cold and cruel things can be, when you stop and be still, immersed the quiet calm of your spirit, you will certainly find something to smile about. And if that is too difficult of a thing to do, then draw you a smiley face on a piece of paper and write underneath it in big bold letters – SMILE! Take this smiley face with you wherever you go. Pull it out when you may feel down and it will serve as a reminder to you, to let your spirit be at peace, even in the midst of chaos, when you just smile!

Have a Smile-Filled Day and every day for the rest of the year!

“Smile at each other, smile at your wife, smile at your husband, smile at your children, smile at each other — it doesn’t matter who it is — and that will help you to grow up in greater love for each other.” ~Mother Teresa of Calcutta
