Once I convinced her to leave the flowers on her head they were not going to come off. She decided she looked pretty in them, which is absolutely true. This little girl is often very smiley but she had almost no interest in smiling at me. I persisted. Finally I got a few grins, roars and real smiles, I had to be quick to catch them though. My favourite shots would have to be the almost last ones I took with her in the basket. Mostly because I got a big smile.  I have never seen a smiling face that was not beautiful!

Before you put on a frown, make absolutely sure there are no smiles available. ~Jim Beggs

If you don’t start out the day with a smile, it’s not too late to start practicing for tomorrow. ~Author Unknown

You’re never fully dressed without a smile. ~Martin Charnin

A smile costs nothing but gives much. It enriches those who receive without making poorer those who give. It takes but a moment, but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever. None is so rich or mighty that he cannot get along without it and none is so poor that he cannot be made rich by it. Yet a smile cannot be bought, begged, borrowed, or stolen, for it is something that is of no value to anyone until it is given away. Some people are too tired to give you a smile. Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile so much as he who has no more to give. ~Author Unknown
