Smile

My daughter wrote this for an assignment she had for school:

“Smile at strangers and you just might change a life”  
-Steve Maraboli-

I always believed that if you smile at a stranger or to anyone, can lift happiness in them. I’m the type of person that loves to smile at someone just because. It feels good because I’m the one who made them smile even if it was just for a few seconds and it’s a really good feeling. This quote explains exactly that and that’s why I chose it. The part where it says “change a life” means to me that when someone is having a bad day just the slightest smile can make their day or even when they are having a good day it can make their day even better. I personally love to smile to random people because it makes my day better. I knew this quote because my grandma said it. She is Catholic so she thinks a smile was God’s gift to humans.
To some people it’s not a big deal but it is to me, it’s like a friendly sign. Some people don’t think that this quote is that good because they don’t think that a smile says a lot of words and they don’t think that it can change a life. It depends on the person, because the person might think the smile is special, nice, and sometimes weird depending on the smile.
