E-Word Week 4, Jan 21,2013

We shall find peace. We shall hear angels.
We shall never know all the good that a simple smile can do.
- Mother Teresa

Let a smile be your umbrella!  I love smiling. I confess I don’t always do it and am very bad about not having a poker face. But smiling truly is the best ice breaker, best non-verbal communication, best day maker, best everything hands down.

Who doesn’t like a smile? (And we are not talking about the evil smiles which aren’t smiles, just a turning up of the corners of your mouth.)

A smile is like an encouraging word without talking. Sometimes there is nothing you can say or do and a smile does it for you. Even at sad times there is a smile you use that is full of compassion and care for another person.

Smiles comes not only from your mouth, but from your eyes, in fact that is how you recognize a true smile, in the eyes.

This week, let some extra smiles be your encouraging words to others. Even if you aren’t feeling very encouraged yourself, or are down. A smile put out in the world almost always is reflected back to you. Or as I have experienced, you’ll receive a surprised look after flashing a bright wide smile at someone who wasn’t expecting one!

Go ahead, make my day: Smile!
