Yesterday I was watching my kids play (I have a 4 and 1/2 yr. old, 3 yr. old and a 1 yr. old) and caught myself looking at the smile on their faces. Their smile was contagious and made me smile.
I started thinking about how cool a smile really is. I mean think about it: even if you were in a foreign country and didn’t know their language – if you smiled, they would at least think of you as friendly. You hope!
Where does the act of smiling come from? I know – God, but why is it so universal and natural? Ever see a newborn baby smile? Nobody had to teach him or her how to.
Maybe it’s too early (9am) for such thoughts. I don’t know. Does anyone else have any thoughts on the wonderful gift of a smile?
