The value of a Smile

January 16, 2007 8:31am CST
A smile costs nothing , but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes last forever. None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, and none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business, and is the countersign of friendship. It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and is nature's best antidote for trouble. Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours. as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

i agree.. i do myself believe in the value of a smile, it makes everyone to feel better, it brightens up our day, it lightens our moods.. it is also a means of writing your thoughts on your face and even without spoken words, you tell others that they are accepted, liked and appreciated.. keep smilin!!
