I know I haven’t written much this week. I have about 7 posts that are just begging to be written. It’s the last week of the term though and I just haven’t had the time to sit down and collect my thoughts. But I came upon this in a book I’m reading and just had to share it with you.
The Value of a Smile at Christmas
It costs nothing, but creates much.
It enriches those who receive without impoverishing those who give.
It happens in a flash and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None are so rich that they can get along without it, and none are so poor but are richer for its benefits.
It creates happiness in the home, fosters good will in a business, and is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and Nature’s best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anybody till it is given away.
And if in the last minute rush of Christmas buying some of our salespeople should be too tired to give you a smile, may we ask you to leave one of yours?
For nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give!
(From “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie)
And just in case you don’t get a smile today, here’s a very famous one – and one of my personal favorites.
|Best. Smile. Ever.|
See you soon, Luv!
