World Smile Day


It's easy to overlook the blessings we have because we take so many things for granted.

When I was in college, Mom asked me, “How is that you always smile?”

I answered, “I read somewhere that smiling makes people wonder what one's been up to.” Mom smiled.

When I moved to the United States, I had a new reason for smiling: There’s no reason not to.

Do we have food on the table?

Do we have a roof above our heads?

Do we have clothes to wear?

Can we worship our Lord openly?

The list is never-ending.

What are your reasons for smiling?
