A Smile
Heart of America Council

 

A SMiLE

A smile costs nothing, but gives much
it takes but a moment, but the memory
of it usually lasts forever
None are so right that can get along without it
And, none are so poor that can be made
rich by it

It enriches those who receive

Without making poor those give.

It creates sunshine in the home,

Fosters goodwill in business

And is the best antidote for trouble.

It cannot be begged, borrowed
or stolen for it is of no value

unless it is freely given away.

Some people are too busy to  give

you a smile:

Give them one of yours,

For the good Lord knows that no one

needs a smile so badly

As he or she -who-has no more smiles

left to give.

 

Edward Everett Hale: "I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something I can do. " The key to accomplishment is believing that what you can do will make a difference.
