a smile is stronger

There are so many little things in life that can make you smile…the right words from a friend, a call from a family member, a baby’s laughter, a hug from someone you love, your favorite movie, a great song…the list goes on and on. These happenings seem insignificant, however, when I take the time to notice what makes me smile, I realize without these moments my life would feel incomplete. When I was in the airport, a man was walking through security and had a wrapper in his hand. He looked for a trash can and found one, across the security lanes. He chucked that wrapper with sly confidence, secretly hoping he could make it in the trash can. When he did he looked around smiling, probably feeling a sense of accomplishment. That momentĀ made me smile, and even laugh a bit. Such a small instance, yet creating significant happiness within me. And without happiness, within me and those around me, life wouldn’t seem worth living.

That is why God must have made smiling so much easier than crying. I notice the little things can make me smile, but it takes something larger to make me cry. God wanted us to smile more than cry…because it makes our life worthwhile. A smile is always stronger.
