Friday Frills


A smile cost nothing, but gives so much. 
It enriches those who receive it, without making poorer those who give it. 
It takes only a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. 
None is so rich or mighty that he can get along without it, 
And none is so poor but that he can be made rich by it. 
A smile creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in business, and is the countersign of friendship. 
It brings rest to the weary, cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, 
And it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen...
For it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. 
Some people are too tired to give you a smile. 
Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give.

Welcome back lovely! This is SO true. A smile can brighten a room, a day or an attitude. As well as the benefits of giving one, I've noticed that I feel so much better when I smile. Happy Friday!

What a lovely message on the gift of a smile ... did that come from you, darling, or is it a famous piece that I just haven't seen before? Either way, it's a lovely thought. And I love that Victoria's Secret model's smile. It's always charming! Thanks for dropping by, Sam! ~xoSM

My dear,
I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It's beautiful, well structured, interesting, sweet amazing [probably your own qualities right?] and it has completely got me hooked. I think we're going to get along just fine! ;)
I'd like to invite you to follow each other. I’d be very pleased.
I wish you lots of success and will surely come back often
kisses
