As a child I told my mother that I was going to be an actress, a doctor or an ambassador. Actress, I’ve done. Doctor, well yeah. Just not M.D., D.D. (My Jewish grandmother is the proudest of that! Go figure.)
I’m still waiting to be appointed an Ambassador Extraordinary & Plenipotentiary. It means a representative of a sovereign nation with all the powers the pertain thereto.
Then I read these words by Celeste Frazier, “Smiles are peace ambassadors.”
I thought, I can do that! I decided there was only one thing for it: to appoint myself an Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary. Especially if smiling is a contribution toward peace.
Mother Teresa said something similar to Celeste Frazier. “Peace, my friends, begins with a smile. Just as simple as that. A smile. So greet one another with a smile.”
Can you smile? Could you make your smiles a peace offering? Come be an Ambassador Extraordinary & Plenipotentiary with me.
