Bella brought me this little book earlier today, and it has the best little poems in it. I really like these two. I feel like maybe someone needs to read this today.. So IF it is you. I hope it touches you and makes you smile. :)
Drop a pebble in the water,
And it's ripples reach out far;
and the sunbeams dancing on them
May reflect them to a star.
Give a smile to someone passing,
Therby making his morning glad;
It may greet you in the evening
WHen your own heart may be sad.
DO a deed of simple kindness;
Though its end you may not see,
It may reach, like widening ripples,
Down a long eternity.
A WORTHWHILE SMILE
It is easy to be pleasant
WHen life flows by like a song,
But the person worthwhile is one who smiles
when everything goes dead wrong
For the test of the heart is trouble
and it will always come witht he years.
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth,
is the smile that shines through the tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
