Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been
When I look in the mirror I do see an awful lot of wrinkles. The great thing is that I can also see the smile lines.
I like to people watch and so often I rarely see a smile anywhere. I’ve even been at amusement parks and failed to catch people laughing or even smiling.
The place I see laughter the most is when I’m around young people. My grand children never fail to bring a smile. They are always full of fun and laughter.
It does make me wonder what happens to people as they age, that it takes so much for them to crack a smile.
I read some place that if you have a job answering the phone you should have a mirror in front of you so that you smile before taking a call and that will make your voice more cheerful.
Maybe we should all take a look in the mirror more often and practice smiling. Practice makes perfect they say.
Cheerfulness removes the rust from the mind, lubricates our inward machinery, and
enables us to do our work with fewer creaks and groans. If people were universally
cheerful, there wouldn't be half the quarreling or a tenth part of the wickedness there is.
Cheerfulness, too, promotes health and morality.
Cheerful people live longest here on earth, afterward in our hearts.
Today is TERRIFIC Tuesday, and I am smiling! I hope you can too!
P.S. This is my last and final week of work. Only 3 more days after today…can you guess why I am smiling?
