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.

  1. I like the way medicine and food were on the same line and also sun and health. Significant data now exists regarding the benefits of vitamin D from the sun and we all remember “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
