A Merry Heart...

Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin
When he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile then I realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected
Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!
~ Author Unknown (to me)

Nothing on earth can smile but people!
Gems may flash reflected light,
But what is a diamond-flash
When compared to an eye-flash and a mirth-flash?

Flowers cannot smile;
Smiling is a charm that even they cannot claim.
Smiling is the prerogative of people.
It is the color which love wears,
And cheerfulness, and joy -- these three.

A smile is the light in the windows of the face,
By which the heart signifies it is at home and waiting.
A face that can't smile is like a bud that can't blossom,
And dries up on the stalk.

Laughter is day. Sobriety is night. A smile is twilight.
It hovers gently between both --
More bewitching than either.
~ A smile by Henry Ward Beecher

A smile starts on the inside.
Have a merry heart...

Be sure to smile today!

"A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance..."
~ Proverbs 15:13

I might have to print this on a big poster boad and put it in the room we school in. Hope all is well with you. I am waiting by the window with an empty tea cup. ;)

That post brought a smile to my face. The piggy picture is adorable! I know animals don't really smile, but if you watch a dog at play, sometimes, you might just get a glimpse. :)

Many blessings on your day
