I agree. Sunshine is energy . Its the main source for all of life as we know it. To smile also takes energy. Positive energy is what makes life prosper, negative leads to death. By transmitting positive energy , we are promoters and sustainers of life it self.

As well as being there for each other. Kind words & deeds are part of friendship...

...it NEVER hurts to smile. Someone once quoted it takes twice as many muscles (thus 2x the effort) to frown. It's a law of nature, it's easier to smile.

So true. I have had people simply say thanks for the smile.
