Turn around






I heard this this morning ... turn around ... wherever you are, at the post office, in the grocery store, wherever ... turn around, look around ... say hello, give a smile...

The Value of A Smile

It costs nothing,
but creates much.
It enriches those who receive
without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash,
and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
It cannot be begged, borrowed, or stolen,
but it is of no earthly good to anyone
until it's given away!
So if in your hurry you run across
someone too weary to smile ~
leave one of yours.
No one needs a smile as much as
he who has none to give.
~ Author Unknown


May your day be
blessed with smiles,
received and given.

  4. What a wonderful thought. Thank you! It reminds me of a little song we sang as children that went "If you chance to meet a frown, do not let it stay. Quickly turn it upside down and smile that frown away. No one likes a frowning face. Change it for a smile. Make the world a better place by smiling all the while."
