Smiling Like "CRAZY"

"A cheerful heart is good medicine"

I have always loved to smile as it definitely beats the alternative!  And I always love to have others smiling with me.  I thought I would share a short blog with you of things that make me smile.  And reasons that smiling is SO important for YOU and those around you!

Hugs from Family and Friends... make me smile

"If you don't have a smile, I'll give you one of mine"

My Cats make me smile

"A cat is all love and energy"

Being at home makes me smile

"A smile is the light in the window of your face 
that tells people you're at home."
author unknown

A Positive Attitude makes me smile

 "Life is like a mirror, we get the best results 
when we smile at it"
author unknown

Being healthy makes me smile

"It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of your body... the heart!"
author unknown

Creating makes me smile

"Keep smiling...
it makes people wonder what you have been up to"
author unknown

Peaceful activities make me smile

"Peace begins with a smile"
Mother Teresa

The "Little Things" make me smile

"If you smile when no one else is around,
you really mean it"
author unknown

"A smile costs nothing but gives much.  It enriches those that receive without making poorer those who give.  It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.  None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it, and none is so poor he cannot be made rich by it.  Yet a smile cannot  bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away.  Some people are too tired to give you a smile.  Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give"

Writing this blog has been an exercise of counting my many blessings... and there are so many that I am simply grinning from ear to ear!  And I bet once you start counting the things that make you happy you will be wearing a smile that lights up the world around you!

"Every time you smile at someone, 
it is an action of love"
Mother Teresa
