SMILE



Be aware, it's not contagious, not the flu, or a cold. It's FREE, comes from any direction,it can spread and it's hard to ignore.


IT'S A SMILE!

S-sensitivity, see, scope
M-mouth,movement
I-interest
L-listen, laughter
E-eye contact

A SMILE is a simple thing to do ,but not so simple that it's not needed. We smile to to give comfort ,sensitivity,acceptance,caring of one person to another A friend's husband has died, we may be at lost for words, a simple smile, may say,"I'm here for you my friend". A smile can acknowledge to a friend or family member pleasure we receive from whatever situation is happening. Watching your child ride a bicycle for the first time and a parent smiles indicating "I'm proud of you, good job. Your in a situation were silence is all that is noted , a smile can transfer a message of understanding. A SMILE is not an expensive gift but many times is needed. It is a gift from our inner self to someone else. It is a gift that Jesus would want us to offer to another person.

to smile

So few muscles needed.
So little effort.
So many benefits.
Smiling brightens our faces
. and lights up a room .
It can disarm
Charm.

  4. Rose,
    I will smile only if I can give it freely without reserve. If I can't , then the recipient doesn't deserve the acknowledgment.
    I know.. I am against the grain. But it is who I am.
    But for your post, I am smiling with/at you.
    :-)

    Hey, I just wanted to explain about the vinegar. If you don't have buttermilk just sour your milk with a little vinegar. I usually use 1T for 1 cup of milk and then just let it sit for a few minutes.

  10. I play a game with my grandson sometimes - especially when he was little - we would try to give a smile away - I told him you could never give a smile away - because when you smile - you get one back! :)
