Our Knowledge is the amassed thought and experience of innumerable minds.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are 43 muscles in the face and the jury is still out on how many muscles it takes to smile or frown… However, what we do know is that smiling lightens up the face while frowning does the opposite. It only takes one smile to shift the energy in a room… So, go ahead, SMILE! On this father’s day, let’s take a moment to reflect on the happy moments we shared with the men/dads in our lives and then spread that love around. Below is a beautiful poem that was shared at graduation yesterday and I had to share it with you. Also, I have added a beautiful story about father’s day, so do click through and read it. I hope your day was bright, beautiful and filled with loving cheer. Happy Father’s Day! How did you celebrate the day?
It only takes one smile to offer welcome… and blessed be the person who will share it.
It only takes one moment to be helpful… and blessed be the person who will spare it.
It only takes one joy to lift a spirit… and blessed be the person who will give it.
It only takes one life to make a difference… and blessed be the person who will live it.

The Barber of Coupe De Ville by Author Unknown
A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He asked his father, who was a minister, if they could discuss his use of the car. His father said to him, “I’ll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study the bible a little, and get your hair cut; then we’ll talk about it.”
A month later, the boy came back and again asked his father if he could use the car. His father said, “Son, I’m really proud of you. You brought your grade up, studied the bible well, but you didn’t get your hair cut!”
The young man waited a moment and then replied, “You know dad, I’ve been thinking about that. Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair.”
His father replied gently, “Yes son, and they walked everywhere they went.”
Come to think of it, I took a long walk today… This has been a hectic weekend in our household and I am looking forward to the week ahead. One thing I know is that I am thankful for all the moments that have made me smile in my lifetime and I celebrate them as well as Father’s Day today. Happy Father’s Day! What are your thoughts? How did you celebrate Father’s Day? What has made you smile today? Do share! Thank you.
