Chapter 2, Page 16, Book 14



It was only a sunny smile,
and little it cost in the giving,
but like morning light
it scattered the night
and made the day worth living.

F. Scott Fitzgerald

Life is worth living and when I think about it, those smiles have made it so.  Smiles indicate happy times.  Joy filled days and moments in time.

Remembering that even though we have some really tough days, there have also been some very GOOD times.  


I've always thought anyone can make money. Making a life worth living, that's the real test.

Robert Fulghum

 
We may not be all the things we want to be, we may not have all the stuff we want but each of us can do something and that something is important.  We can smile and we can love and very often love starts with a smile.  We want to give smiles and receive them and making someone smile makes my day!


The world is as a looking-glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it and it in turn will look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly, kind companion.


William Makepeace Thackeray

I like the poem by F. Scott Figzerald and your words of wisdom that we can smile and we can love and very often love does start with a smile. So very true!

Hope your Sunday was a nice one!
