This is a poignant thought, but also a gentle reminder.
Maya Angelou goes on to say, "... don't be surly at home, then go out in the street and start grinning, 'Good Morning' at total strangers."
There's no need to feel guilty, we all do this from time to time, when it comes to our loved ones we know they will continue to put up with us, forgive us and love us, and that is why they are our nearest and dearest, that's why we call it unconditional love, they see us at our best and at our worst and love us still.
This "Thought of the week" is a gentle reminder to not take the most special people in our lives for granted. If you are having 'one of those days' and feel that you really do only have one smile, see if you can reserve this for those you love the most.
Our closest relationships are so important in our lives and it doesn't take much effort on our part to foster harmony and bring so much pleasure. This week amid your busy schedule, pause to consider these special people and think of simple ways to show them how much you care about them.
Smile at them.
Speak kind words to them.
Of course we all do get busy and this is when we forget. Displaying great thoughts around your home is an inspiring and uplifting reminder to you, and ALL those who see it. A simple sideways glance at this great thought has the power to change your whole day.
