Smile :-)

Ibu Theresa sering memberikan hadiah yang tak terduga kepada siapa saja. Ketika serombongan orang Amerika, kebanyakan berprofesi guru, mengunjunginya di Calcutta, mereka memintanya memberi nasihat untuk dibawa pulang ke keluarga mereka.

“Tersenyumlah kepada istri Anda,” katanya kepada mereka. “Tersenyumlah kepada suami Anda.”

Mengira bahwa nasihat itu terlalu sederhana, mengingat itu diucapkan oleh orang yang tidak menikah, salah satu dari mereka bertanya, “Apakah Anda menikah?”

“Ya,” jawabnya, membuat mereka terkejut, “dan saya sering merasa sulit sekali untuk tersenyum kepada Yesus. Kadang-kadang Dia sangat menuntut.”

(Eileen Egan)

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

(Words by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons, Music by Charlie Chaplin)
