In Others' Words: Smile






"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing." ~Mother Teresa


Doesn't that guy in the photo have a great smile? You just can't help smiling back!
Okay, I confess I'm just a bit biased. That guy is my son Josh--and today's his birthday! So, I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled musings to give a "Happy Birthday" shout out to my son!
Photo or no photo, there's a lot of truth in what Mother Teresa says about smiles. Except for when a photographer has a camera pointed right at you and demands that you say, "Cheese!" no one can force you to smile. Your smile is a gift to another person--a truly beautiful, one of a kind gift. 


In Your Words: Have you shared your smile with anyone lately? Or has someone's smile made a difference in your day?

Happy birthday, Josh!

In my line of work, smiles are not optional. There's a lot to smile about when working with children. Most of them smile so freely.

Happy Birthday to Josh!

My kids draw lots of smiles from me,and I love when I can do the same with them.

God gave us a marvelous gift when He added them to our lives!

I agree, Jeanne. Kiddos provide lots of reasons to smile!
