A Smile

A smile something that we can all give and all receive. A smile is something that makes us all feel special.  The following reflection celebrates something that costs nothing but gives much.


A Smile

A smile is something that 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 lasts forever.


None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it and none is so poor that he can be made rich by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business and is the countersign of friendship.                     

It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and is natures 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.

We hope there is the opportunity for you, your family and your friends to give and receive lots of SMILES over the ensuing weeks
