Smile awhile

Posted Friday, March 28, 2008, at 10:30 AM

Sometimes life keeps us so busy that we forget to take the time to appreciate those around us.

I recently discovered that tomorrow will not always be there for those whom we love. We really can't afford to neglect to tell those close to us how we feel about them. We must make it a priority to compliment them when they do something good and say thank you when they go out of their way to do something nice for us.

I have found that very often the only time we try to communicate with each other is when something has upset us. In cases such as this, we waste no time letting the offender know that we are not pleased. Why can we not use the same energy to let those we encounter throughout the day know that they are appreciated and loved?

Give someone an extra smile today. It will not only make them feel better, but it will make you feel good about yourself as well.
