A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.

William Arthur Ward

The value of a smile at Christmas

Dale Carnegie

It costs nothing but creates much.
It enriches those who receive, without impoverishing those that give
It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so ricn that they can get along without it, and none so poor but are richer for it’s benefits
It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in business and is the coutersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad and naterurs best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed her stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away.
And it, in the last minute rush of Christmas buying, for some of our salespeople should be too tired to give you a smile, may we ask that you leave one of yours?
For nobody needs a smile so much as those that have none left to give

Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a Happy New Year!

A smile is happiness youll find right under your nose.

Yep there is so much in a smile. Love the ones you show! Christmas, just the word usually causes a smile.
Amazing how old Dale could put things into words.
Have a great day,

So cute with everyone's smiles with you and your family, Ma! Just smiling at strangers, you can see how their perspective changes while waiting in line, etc. It never hurts to smile especially this busy time of year!
