Mother Theresa said, “Peace begins with a smile.”
I believe it.
Shortly after we
Moved to Montana,
I joined the
Smiles helped me
Get to know
One another better.
Here is a poem
I wrote back then.
It’s still pertinent
(maybe even more so)
“If you see someone without a smile,” the old saying goes,
“Give ’em one of yours.” It’ll chase away their woes.
It won’t hurt you a bit and it don’t take no time.
Might even be returned, and won’t cost you a dime.
If you see someone without a smile, maybe they just need
The kind of cheer you got – to bring ’em up to speed.
You might throw in a handshake, or a “Howdy, how ya be?”
Might be their first friendly touch in a day or two or three.
Might be they’d like to tell you how they truly are,
‘Cuz usually when folks ask that, they don’t really car.
So, add some hospitality to the smile you send their way,
And shucks, you never know, ya might just make their day!
Oh, and by the way,
That’s my DollyWolly,
Ain’t it great?
“Peace begins with a smile.”
