It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

January 3rd - The 10th Day of Christmas

Wouldn't life be worth the living
Wouldn't dreams be coming true
If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?

There are hundreds of languages in the world, but a smile speaks them all  A smile crosses the boundaries of culture, background, age and beliefs. What's more, it works the same magic in them all!

A warm smile can make a child feel better, as surely as it can cheer up an old woman.  It can soften hearts and firm up commitments.  It can mend friendships and break tensions. It can reassure and give support. It can say, I love you, and congratulations. It can make friendships. It can make memories or even make your day.

Happiness and laughter are contagious, make us feel good, and even protect our hearts. We all know what happens when someone gets the giggles, those around start laughing as well. Laughter emanates from happy people. Start this New Year with joy and laughter and let gratitude resonate throughout.



A smile can really brighten a day. And so can a kind word.

Yeah, and even if it took me 8 hours to get it on, I really did not lose the smile. Of course Betty seems to read my mind, I was thinking of you!

Absolutely. I always think of the quote from Dickens about keeping Christmas in our hearts all year long.
