I try to (what I call) “smile-speak” every day. But I don’t always remember to to do that. When I do remember, the blessings that come my way are F A B U L O U S.
Like the day when I saw a woman at the library who was upset that the books she’d requested weren’t in and muttered “Why should I be surprised the way this day is going?” I caught her eye and smiled – and she stopped, looked straight at me, paused, then said “Thank you. I needed that,” smiled back at me and carried on.
I may have imagined it, but I think her posture was more upright and her walk seemed to have some ‘spunk’ in them. I know mine did. I didn’t say a word. I just shared a “smile-speak.”
Let’s “smile-speak” today. Let’s give smiles away … they’re free … they give a double blessing … they nourish our sense of spirituality reminding us of our common humanity … AND they exercise our face slowing down those creeping age lines. We all smile in the same language. Let’s “smile-speak.”
