Sharing a smile

Taken at Lowry Zoo in Naples


What opens your heart...

Gives you a sense of belonging...

And brings you happiness?

Feeling loved and appreciated...

Loving yourself...

And offering unconditional love to others.


Have you felt like you had the world on your shoulders and then someone gives you a warm smile or a nice compliment and it changes your whole day? Sometimes, we receive a smile that catches us by surprise...especially when it comes from a stranger...a stranger who's heart is generous. These gifts are precious. Return the kindness with a smile back...then go pay it forward to someone never know who's day you may change.


From the Velveteen Rabbit: "...Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand..."


"I can make a difference in the world"
