smile value

This was handed out at church, don't know the author but it is too good not to pass on.


It costs nothing, but creates much.

It enriches those who recieve without impoverishing those who give.

It happens in a flash, and the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.

None are so rich they can get along without it, and none so poor they can't afford it.

It creates happiness in the home, fosters goodwill in a business, and is the countersign of friends. It is the rest for the weary, daylight to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad, and natures best antidote for trouble.

Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen, for it is something that is no earthly good to anyone until it is given away.

And if in the course of the day some of your friends should be too tired to give you a smile, why don't you give them one of yours?

For nobody needs a smile so much as those who have none left to give!!

My employees are required to smile whenever dealing with a patient, even over the phone - the person on the other end of the line can tell.

I agree with JMC, my staff is coached on such items. The sad thing is should
someone have to be be taught such a basic life skills? In my opinion we live in a me, me, me I, I, I society (my opinion only). Working around affulent individuals it never fails to amaze me that they can't even say hello! It would seem being in their position you'd be the most pleasant person on earth.
