A Smile

A SMILE
It cost nothing, but creates much.
It enriches those who receive,
without impoverishing those
who give.
It happens in a flash and the
memory of it lasts forever.
None are so rich they can get
along without it and none so
poor but are richer for its
benefits.
It creates happiness in the home,
fosters good will in a business,
and is the countersign of friends.
It is rest to the weary, daylight to
the discouraged, sunshine to the
sad, and nature's best antidote
for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged,
borrowed, or stolen, for it is
something that is no earthly
good to anybody till it is given
away!
If someone is to tired to give you
a smile, leave one of yours.
For, nobody needs a smile so
much as those who have none to
give.
