Swallow A Smile

"Swallow A Smile" When it first started which would be impossible to trace, we've accepted the fact that a smile is only worn for the face! Realizing what elicits this gesture is when we are thoroughly pleased as the corners of our mouths tend to rise with relative ease! What if we took that feeling and to make it more worthwhile, what if we did something so simple as this.... "Swallow A Smile!" That's right!.... "Swallow A Smile!" Send that feeling way down to our feet! Who wouldn't want to feel that feeling! "Man!, that's got to feel sweet!" What's the worst that could possibly happen? A case of the "Giggles" as it goes down! The very idea to "Swallow A Smile" sure beats wearing a frown! Unfortunately the world today is in such a turmoil filled state! Whatever could help to provide relief, "Wow! Wouldn't that be great!" There is something that pleases everyone and causes within great joy, like watching a child light up like the sun when they receive a new toy! So the next time something good happens and you want to feel "like your rolling in the aisle!" With nothing to lose, go ahead, try it once! Enjoy the feeling.... "Swallow A Smile!" WTA-IV 3/22/2016

This is such a positive poem. We've heard it said, "That smile didn't reach her eyes." The most beautiful smile is so genuine that it comes from a happy heart. Walter, thank you for making us smile that way.

Good evening to you Tim! Thank you and when it comes to smiles may it take hammers and chisels to remove them... And better yet May that not be successful! :-)
