Every time you smile
“Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing.” — Mother Teresa
I wrote last year about Matt’s smiles, and how they have decorated countless photos and memories in his 28 years. That post is linked below. He’s had some help and encouragement in that regard, because people have showered him with beautiful smiles all his life.
Can you think of anything as easy, simple and free as a smile that adds so much joy to the world? If we could all manage to give away more sincere, honest smiles — not the plastered-on fake kind, but genuine greetings of friendly regard — wouldn’t that instantly improve everyday life? Let’s try it. Smiles open hearts and minds and doors to friendship. They are beautiful things!
