October has arrived! I hope your month is off to a great start. Please take a moment to read this month’s featured poem, “A Smile.” No matter good or bad your day has been, when you wear a smile on your face you can change your attitude and the mood of those around you. Have a great month and don’t forget to leave a comment!

“A Smile”  

I never knew that a smirk or little dimple,

Can make things smooth and life so simple.

Forget the bad times,  instead of keeping them on file,

Have a fresh start, a heart, and a smile.

Any blank slate can produce hate,

But being angry is such a waste.

Learn to lighten someone else’s load instead of adding to the pile.

It’s amazing what you can do when your face wears a smile.

Don’t Worry, Be Happy is the song that relates.

Don’t talk behind people back and then smile in their face.

When God tells you, you can make it…don’t you dare ask how child!

Just accept each day as a blessing and smile.
