Casserole… for the soul
Attention hometown peeps!
Anyone remember Nancy’s Records? The only place in town to buy our concert tickets & jukes (albums and even some cassettes!). While rummaging through an old box I found a crumply Nancy’s bag… I had forgotten this was printed on them;
A smile costs nothing but gives much.
It enriches those who receive it without making poorer those who give it.
It takes but a moment but the memory of it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that they can get along without it,
And no one is so poor that they cannot be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,
Fosters goodwill in business
And is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,
Cheerfulness to the discouraged,
Sunshine to the sad,
And it is nature’s best antidote in times of trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed or stolen,
For it is something that is of no value to anyone unless it is given away.
Some people are too tired to smile. Give them one of yours,
As no one needs a smile so much as those who don’t have one to share.
I vaguely remember a picture taken at Nancy’s Records in one of our yearbooks (I guess they were an advertiser). I can’t even remember where they were located. I had no idea there was anything like this printed on the bag. Another lifetime.
