Reasons to smile

What a difference a smile makes! To greet someone with a smile is one of the greatest things anyone can do. It's easy to do, costs absolutely nothing and yet can have such a wonderful impact on everyone!

We all have so many reasons to smile... Spring has sprung! The birds and singing! The frogs are croaking and the flowers are blooming. And whether the sun is shining or the rain is pouring down, it is the special people in our lives that really makes us smile!

I just feel so lucky as I get to meet so many inspirational people. My job is to make people smile and in return this gives me the motivation to smile a whole lot more! What a win-win situation! It's as easy as A B C
