Giving and Receiving

You've heard the old saying, "it is better to give than to receive"?  Well, sometimes, in helping others we also help ourselves.  So .. today your task ***should you choose to accept your mission*** ... is to go help THREE people and reach out to them who you have not previously met.  

Let's expand our weight loss circle of friends and help each other .. then come back and share with us how it made you feel .. and perhaps later .. how it made you feel if you hear from them.

Before you may think about dismissing this task .. think of how many times you may have felt down that you would have liked to have someone just reach out and brighten your day.

Have a Marvelous Monday ... (((Hugs)))

When i read your challenge I thought of the following Poem from Elaine's book.

Smiling is infectious,
you catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today,
I started smiling too.

I passed around the corner
and someone saw my grin
When he smiled I realized
I'd passed it on to him.

I thought about that smile
then I realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine
could travel round the earth.

So, if you feel a smile begin,
don't leave it undetected
Let's start an epidemic quick,
and get the world infected!

Everyone needs a smile! and when we support others they will support you.
I have started your challenge by accepting and supporting a new friend. Who i previously didn't know.
