Sharing Smiles

We were watching a TV movie the other night "I am David" about a Bulgarian boy whose family were imprisoned in a communist work camp during the 1950s. Somehow David got separated from his parents, then is allowed to escape and told to head north to Denmark to safety. This is during the Berlin wall and the iron curtain-the years of the cold war. During his adventures and travels, David comes to realize he has doesn't know how to smile. An excellent family movie, try to see it-if you haven't. Made in 2004, it is touching and has a wonderful message.

I think many of us forget to SMILE and show appreciation daily for the blessings of just being alive. I know smiling at someone can certainly brighten their day or to having someone smile at you warms your heart. We have opportunities to communicate daily without words to all we come in contact with. Try smiling MORE.
