Last week my friend Anne lost her husband after a tough BaTtLe with cancer. They had just celebrated their son’s first birthday and through it all Anne managed to stay upbeat, positive, and grateful for their time together as a family. The night before her husband passed she wrote, “Hug your loved ones and smile at a stranger. Today only comes once” on her Facebook page. I was immediately stuck by such PoWeRfUL words.
A SMiLe…something so simple yet packed with such meaning. Whether it be the crossing guard you drive by daily, a cashier at the grocery store, or a stranger you meet at the post office; you never know what they might be going through and how much a smile might mean to them. It is something that won’t cost anything and the payback will warm your HeARt.
