A Smile from AmmaNaana

Dear Children,

A smile costs nothing, but gives much.
It enriches those who give it.
It only takes but a moment,
But the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

No one is so rich or mighty
That he can get along without it.
And no one is so poor
That he cannot be made richer by it.

A smile creates happiness in the home,
Promotes good will in business,
And is the cornerstone of friendship.

It can perk up the weary,
Bring cheer to the discouraged,
Sunshine to the sad,
And 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.

When people are too tired to give you a smile,
Give them one of yours.
No one needs a smile so much
As he who has none to give.
