Today is World Smile Day!


Enjoy …and maybe give away some extra smiles today!  

And, if you’d like to consider more than just personal smiles today, I invite you to look at and the magnificent work they do to help people smile again.


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!
