Have you ever thought about all the things you can accomplish just by simply smiling. A smile can turn someones whole day around and maybe even their attiude. I have been at low points in my life and I would run into a friend and their smile was the first thing that I saw.It warmed my heart and gave me hope. I always try to smile at everyone I come into contact with. Can you image looking down at a child with a big old frown on your face. I once had a teacher who told me it takes less mucles to smile than to frown. So why not smile?? When i recieved the you make me smile award it made me SMILE!!!!! Thank you so much!!! now I would like to pass this award on to three special ladies that make me smile .

My husband I always make a "challenge" when we are out walking....we try to see how many people we can make eye contact with and smile really is contagious!

What a wonderful post! It is so easy
to do and can really make someone's day! Yesterday, one of the greeters at church asked me if I always smile so brightly. I answered that I did not always do so but now, I have found that if *I* smile at others, it lifts my spirits as well!

Thank you for visiting me. Now I have found your blog and can visit regularly!

It is lovely here!

Awww! A smile is the nicest thing! Here in Chicago I do this all the time and it's so funny that people are sorta weirded out:) In the south it's so different!

BTW... thanks for visiting!

Thanks for the reminder to smile! It is really uplifting! And I confess I don't do it enough... I get so carried away with all my responsibilities. I'd probably feel and look less stressed if I remembered to smile once in a while! =)

They say that laughing makes you live DH makes me laugh every single day...even when we are mad at each other...and how about a "thank-you" or "you're welcome" when someone holds the door open or when you do something nice for someone. That goes a long way too!!!!

What a darling, darling picture! And you're right about smiles. Sometimes even a "text smile" is enough. =) Blessings... Polly

What a great post! Thank you so much for visiting me and leaving such sweet comments. I love meeting new people.

I have to say, I smile at everyone when I'm out. Not too often do you get a smile back. Sometimes I do but other times people look at me like I'm an alien. Sad!

Come back again!
