Smile! Why not? We all need to smile more. Smile at a stranger and watch the results. Smile!


Have you had a smile on your face today?
If not, why not?
What stops you from smiling?
If you have, how many times?
And how did you smile?
Timidly or broadly?
With confidence or shyly?
You ought to smile,
And smile broadly too;
Smile from jaw to jaw;
Smile with all your heart;
It doesn’t cost a mite;
And it doesn’t hurt the least;
It’s medicinal;
The world is not on your shoulders;
Laugh if you can;
Smile,and grow fat.

In 2017 she formed Warm Witty Publishing to self publish her debut novel 'The Zanzibar Moon'. Donna lives on the Gold Coast with her husband, youngest son and the weirdo Staffy Mahli. She adores being a grandmother but still feels young. She often joins her husband's pool cleaning business, just for fun (but is unsure if she's all that helpful).
