    There's a girl in my class

    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...

    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.

    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.

    When in public there are those times you catch

    someone's eye, and in giving a smile they will return it. This gives yourself and others that warm feeling of recognition and acceptance

    Smiling for someone is sweet.

    But making others smile is the best feeling. Remember the quote, a smile is a curve that sets everything straight. So, don't forget to smile.

    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.

    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.
