I know her family and she participated in a hat event of mine when she was a child in Manhattan.

Thoughts about smiling

A smile is a revolutionary act because something has to change drastically to smile. To get to something better, we have to overthrow something that is worn out, or holding us back. We have to change the way we think about something to turn a frown into a smile.
A smile revolution demands us to look for something that at first might not seem to be there, be grateful for, and build on it. A smile says, “I see the good.” Nothing to keep us from starting right now. Thanks to this site for nudging us in the right direction! Look forward to hearing more stories about smile victories!”
