“If you smile when no one else is around, you really mean it.”

Andy Rooney
(14 Jan 1919 - 04 Nov 2011)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smile_%28Charlie_Chaplin_song%29

"Smile" is a song based on an instrumental theme used in the soundtrack for the 1936 Charlie Chaplin movie Modern Times. Chaplin composed the music, while John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics and title in 1954.[1] In the lyrics, based on lines and themes from the film, the singer is telling the listener to cheer up and that there is always a bright tomorrow, just as long as they smile. "Smile" has become a popular standard since its original use in Chaplin's film...

The song, originally sung by Nat King Cole, charted in 1954...

Top 10 Reasons to Smile

By , About.com Guide

Updated February 04, 2010

Smiling is a great way to make yourself stand out while helping your body to function better. Smile to improve your health, your stress level, and your attractiveness. Smiling is just one fun way to live longer read about the others and try as many as you can.

1. Smiling Makes Us Attractive

We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. We want to know a smiling person and figure out what is so good. Frowns, scowls and grimaces all push people away -- but a smile draws them in (avoid these smile aging habits to keep your smile looking great).

2. Smiling Changes Our Mood

Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. There's a good chance you mood will change for the better. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood.

3. Smiling Is Contagious

When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.

4. Smiling Relieves Stress

Stress can really show up in our faces. Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed. When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile. The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.

5. Smiling Boosts Your Immune System

Smiling helps the immune system to work better. When you smile, immune function improves possibly because you are more relaxed. Prevent the flu and colds by smiling.

6. Smiling Lowers Your Blood Pressure

When you smile, there is a measurable reduction in your blood pressure. Give it a try if you have a blood pressure monitor at home. Sit for a few minutes, take a reading. Then smile for a minute and take another reading while still smiling. Do you notice a difference?

7. Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin

Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin. Together these three make us feel good. Smiling is a natural drug.

8. Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger

The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger. Don't go for a face lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better.

9. Smiling Makes You Seem Successful

Smiling people appear more confident, are more likely to be promoted, and more likely to be approached. Put on a smile at meetings and appointments and people will react to you differently.

10. Smiling Helps You Stay Positive

Try this test: Smile. Now try to think of something negative without losing the smile. It's hard. When we smile our body is sending the rest of us a message that "Life is Good!" Stay away from depression, stress and worry by smiling.

From My Friend, Laura, of NC - 09/23/14 - "Pray More, Worry Less":

  "And now, my beloved brethren, I perceive that ye ponder still in your hearts; and it grieveth me that I must speak concerning this thing. For if ye would hearken unto the Spirit which teacheth a man to pray, ye would know that ye must pray; for the evil spirit teacheth not a man to pray, but teacheth him that he must not pray.

"But behold, I say unto you that ye must pray always, and not faint; that ye must not perform any thing unto the Lord save in the first place ye shall pray unto the Father in the name of Christ, that he will consecrate thy performance unto thee, that thy performance may be for the welfare of thy soul."

~ 2 Nephi 32:8–9

Satan wants so badly to cut off your communication with your Father in heaven. So, pray always! Thank Him for your blessings, ask Him questions, tell Him about your day! He wants to hear from you and help you with everything you do!

    AMEN! Thank you, Laura!

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 09/25/14:

John received a free ticket to the Super Bowl. Unfortunately. John's seat was in the last row in the corner of the stadium. He was closer to the Goodyear Blimp than the stadium. He noticed an empty seat 10 rows up from the 50-yard line.

He decided to make his way to the empty seat. As he sat down he asked the man next to him if anyone was sitting there. The man told him no, it was empty.

John was very excited to have a seat like this at a Super Bowl and asked why in the world no one is using it.

The man replied that it was his wife's seat but she passed away. He said this was the first Super Bowl that they had not attended together since they were married in 1968.

John said that it was really sad and asked if he couldn't have found someone, a relative or a close friend, to take the seat.

"No," replied the man, "They're all at her funeral!"

Smile

Music by Charlie Chaplin (16 Apr 1889 – 25 Dec 1977), 1936

Words by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons (07 Jan 1910 - 22 Dec 1987), 1954

Recorded by Nat King Cole (17 Mar 1917 – 15 Feb 1965), 1954


 Smile, though your heart is aching,
Smile, even though it's breaking.
When there are clouds in the sky -
You'll get by.

If you smile through your fear and sorrow,
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you.

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear may be ever so near,
That's the time you must keep on trying,
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile,
If you just smile.
