Never Underestimate the Power of a SMILE!



How's this for one happy flower?
                                         
                                                         
Daisies always make me smile. I gave this one a bit of an "embellishment" ;<)   But in real life, no embellishment is required, when it comes to beautiful and genuine smiles.

                                         
A smile can change our day; sometimes change our life.
Or the life of someone else, when we share a smile.


We should never underestimate the impact a smile can have.
The power of this simple gesture is truly amazing.



Smile: at those you love, to let them know they are special and never taken for granted.
                      

Smile: at strangers, especially people who look sad or lonely.
                       

Smile: at yourself, in the mirror. Or in the reflection of a window.
                             

Smile: and make the world a better, happier place. :<)
                        


And sending a smile to my "daisy" blog pal : Teri
Your daisy creations always make me smile.


Smile: Also my suggestion for this week's OSI prompt.

I have been wondering where you were. Thought you might be busy finishing up the book.

You are so right about a smile.

A wonderful contribution to OSI. Thank you, Geraldine!

Geraldine said...

Hi Teri, I kind of like it too. I've got it for my desktop background right now. It's been so dreary here, for weeks now hardly any sun, I need a pick me up when I go on my computer LOL. You are definitely the Daisy Teri I am referring to!!!

Hi Lissa, Thanks for the kind words Lissa. It's been kind of a tough day actually but I'm hoping for a better week ahead. On the plus side, I got some good work done today on my novel and that did make me smile!

Hi SandyL, I certainly have been focusing on my novel Sandy. But I couldn't resist suggesting smile for OSI and this is when it came up on the list! I think smiles are very powerful.

Hi SandyC, It was my pleasure Sandy and so nice to be back at OSI this week. I hope there are lots of participants and can't wait to see what they do with this prompt.

Happy Week to all of you, G

You have a beautiful smile and when you smile you make people happy, including me.

Hi Dr. Pearl, Welcome to Happy Break and thanks for your kind words!

Hi Denise, I really think a smile can change so much, and for the better. Welcome to Happy Break too!

Hi Joe, Ahhh...that's so nice to read. I need to smile more and frown less. I'll keep that in mind more this week. It's hard sometimes to rise above the difficulties and remember to smile in spite of them. I'll work on that.

Happy Week, G :<)
