    There is a girl in the library I use

    who has the most wonderful smile. I sometimes go in there and ask for something just so she will smile for me. It makes me feel great all day. She wears a ring, probably has a boyfriend but that's fine by me. I don't want to chat her up or date her, just to see that smile.

    8 years ago, I walked into 7-11 on a warm

    summer morning holding my toddler's hand. As I pulled the door open, I noticed your head turn - your skin looked beautiful against your white Oxford shirt and blue tie. Our eyes met and your smile quickly broadened. Thank you for leaving me with that. That's how you make...

    Seeing that we are all the same,

    be amazed of what you get back. Just give a smile, open your heart to everyone. All life is connected. Don't believe me just try it.

    Be Happy...... Enjoy every moment of your life.

    Life is too short to waste on grudges. Laugh when you can, apologies when you should, and let go of what you can't change.

    All it takes is to smile,

    it truly changes so much. We have enough sour pusses in the world. Like my daughter said dont be a debbie downer. kissy wasnt talkin to me cause Im mostly cheerful and bubbly. That was one of Kissys sayings. Cheerfulness is contagious so spread those smiles people.

    A little elderly gentleman stopped in to see me

    at work today. He noticed I had been out of the office for the last two days and said it wasn't like me to miss work. When he saw my vehicle in the parking lot, he stopped just to check on me. He said he missed my warm greeting and friendly smile while I was gone. He said...

    I was brought up to always give a smile to

    everyone even to strangers. One day I was walking and I saw a stranger coming towards me and I did my usual curtsy with a smile and the man responded with the same gesture ! Do you know who that was? He is Pope Francis! Yes he says hello even to the littlest girl on earth...

    I've seen it happen. I love smiling

    and complimenting someone just to brighten their day. Sometimes if my waitress or person bagging my groceries seems down I smile and say something nice to them. I did this just yesterday to a young man bagging our groceries... I'm pretty dog gone funny and I couldn't even get...

    I may not have the perfect smile,

    but I do believe a smile and the right attitude can surely change people's days. Because when strangers smile and greet me, whether it be holding open the door or waiting in line at the mall, it's the little things that can instantly change my day! So as I pass by some strangers...

    This is so unbelievably true!

    Smiling is contagious, and I believe sometimes we get so caught up in our busy world that we forget such simple gestures could brighten someone's day. I know it does mine.

    I add a smile to everything I wear

    and that has worked great for me. Smiling is definitely one of the best beauty remedies. If you have a good sense of humor and a good approach to life, that’s beautiful. Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Wear...

    as simple as smiling at someone can completely change their day. I have seen people who look sad and depressed and I find that if I smile at them a lot of times they will smile back. If I smile at someone who is having a rough day a lot of times they will tell me later that my...

    One smile can make someone whole day change,

    they can turn from sad to happy within minutes. Literally seconds one inure they could be contemplating suicide and the next they could want to live again all from a smile. It can warm your heart even though it doesn't tell you what it's true purpose is. Ladies send me some...

    who is not so beautiful or smart or anything special. Nobody likes her or talks to her. Everyone ignores her. A few days ago I came to know that her mom died last year. I felt so bad. So next day I looked at her and just smiled nicely and said hi. You can't believe she became so...

    and your smile makes my day. You have no way of knowing that I secretly hope that I see you everyday. You could be that high school crush some 30 years ago.... The power of a smile is unbelievable. A smile moving of muscles can change the world or better yet, have a ripple...
