Keep Smiling

By LuAnne Silvia, ASID
A few weeks ago I wrote an entry entitled 'Working Smile Power' about the power of a smile, and what a gift it is in our work as interior designers to have the opportunity to incorporate something into each interior that will make someone smile.
Today we are wearing brown and yellow ribbons and thinking of a special person whose smile had a lasting impression. The collective sharing of stories among the people who knew him contain a unifying thought, his constant smile brightened all of our lives. We had the great pleasure of being greeted by Keith’s smiling face and bright spirit each day. His positive outlook, exuberance for life and the joy he found in knowing and helping others is an inspiration and will be remembered.
One of my favorite quotes has never had more meaning and is worth sharing, and really thinking about, again:
"Our work-a-day lives are filled with opportunities to bless others. The power of a single glance or an encouraging smile must never be underestimated." -G. Richard Rieger
