The other day I ran into a woman who I know suffers from medical conditions, including depression. I greeted her with a hug and asked, “How are you today?”
I didn’t expect the generic “Fine. And how are you?” response; however, she surprised me by saying, “I’m good. It’s a good day today.”
I looked into her eyes and said, “Well, where’s your smile?”
Her hands automatically flew to her cheeks. “Oh, I sometimes forget that I can smile.”
Every morning we get up and put on our deodorant, lotions, perfumes, undergarments, work clothes, play clothes, dress clothes, and maybe a hat. Do we forget to put on our smile?
