101 Reasons To Smile by Dr. Howard B. Shullman
Enjoy a few excerpts below:
“Listening to a story being told by someone who has been in love for 50 years. Seeing that same couple holding hands as they tell their story.”
“Taking braces off a child who had no desire to smile and face the world. Witnessing that same child see their dreams become a reality with a brand new smile.”
“Squishing your toes in the sand as the ocean water surrounds your feet.”
“Looking into someone’s eyes and seeing their soul.”
“Smiles inspire all of us. Smiles evoke confidence. Smiles warm the soul. Smiles have the ability to change our mood and the mood of others. Smiles are contagious. For these reasons and so many more, this book was written to express the joy I have experienced over the years creating beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.” – Dr. Howard Shullman
