A friend just sent me this video commercial for Evian water. If you need a smile then I suggest you watch it. Have a wonderful day! http://www.youtube.com/v/pfxB5ut-KTs "The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions--the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment."

Don’t just do something, sit there!
I grew up in a household of rushers. I don't remember ever seeing my mother sit down and just relax, or simply appreciate doing nothing. If my father wasn't reading (usually the newspaper) or watching TV, he didn't sit either.

When I get up in the morning (or in the middle of the night) I always look in the mirror and smile at myself. Sometimes I say, "Hello Mary, good to see you!"...but I always make myself smile. I say, "make myself" because many times I do not feel like it...sometimes it is 2 a.m.… Continue reading remember to smile!
