A Smile

If you have only one smile in you, give it to the people you love. (Maya Angelou, late US Poet Laureate)

“Roses are Red, Violets are Blue . . .” is the way our childish Valentine cards often began. It’s Valentine’s Day, and we’re expected to card and gift those we love today. There may be a lot of people we really care for and we can at least do what Angelou suggests—give them a smile. It costs very little but it can be very helpful—a valuable touch to those you love.

Look at him; give him your warmest smile. (Psalm 34:5)

A cheerful heart brings a smile to your face. (Proverbs 15:13)
