You know how there are those people who when writing ALWAYS use exclamation marks (I just happen to be one of them), well I have discovered as of late that I am a habitual user of smiley faces. I LOVE them!!! I am especially fond of using them while chatting, like on facebook. I can just be typing along and if a smile comes on my face (or in my heart), it comes out on the keypad as well :)
I not only love smiley faces while typing but in life. There is nothing like the smile on someones face to let you know that whatever you did wrong is ok or that they know just what your thinking. A smile on my own face can change the way a clerk might treat me or how my husband or children perceive what I'm saying. Proverbs 15:30 says, "A cheerful look brings joy to the heart" My mom used to sing a song to my sister and I sometimes in the mornings that went like this, "Good morning to you, good morning to you, we're all in our places, with sunshiny faces, and this is the way, to start a new day!"
pretty is . . . a smiley face!
