Random Acts of Kindness

It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.  ~Author Unknown
Today it was a lady in the waiting room of the dentist, a complete stranger, who held my hand and talked to me, telling me I wouldn't be in pain for much longer.

Today it was a dentist who didn't charge me for the work he did, saying he was happy that I would no longer be in pain.

Tomorrow it could be me, or it could be you. A smile costs nothing and uses less muscles than a frown does and it could make the day of someone who is feeling utterly awful.

Smile, even if you feel awful; it will make you feel better even if you think it won't. Laugh; it really is the best medicine. Be happy, because if you're happy, then the world seems like less of a dark place.

  1. My philosophy too - smiles are so very important!
    Delighted you'll no longer be in pain and hoping you'll rest awhile to let your body recoup.
    Your letter arrived today - gosh, you're speedy! Thank you so much, and yes I will be sending a reply.
    Now go take care of your sore gums....
