I do make an effort to smile throughout the day. Some days it’s much easier than others – just as it is for everyone, I imagine. I know it makes a difference in my day, and I know it makes a difference in the lives of others too.
I made the extra effort to smile even more today. I smiled through the temptations, through the pain, through the bad habits and frustration. Fear. I smiled through the discouragement and worry. I smiled.
The more I smiled, the more I saw others lifting their cheeks right back at me, which made me grin even more. A few times today I even felt my heart smile.
I am grateful for that. Gratitude and appreciation – Blessings, Favor, Gratitude, and Appreciation.
