Happy New Year -2019!I hope your Holidays were magical and spent with those you love! I had a wonderful time vacationing with my family in sunny Florida. Spending time with our son Philip, who is a Senior in college, and very busy with school and working was the best gift!
We enjoyed biking, the beach, swimming, golfing and an occasional movie. We ate too much, and frequented our local favorites - Iquana Mia and Rib City. We also enjoyed Tony Socco's Pizza and hosting our neighbors from Michigan; Arnie and Dorothy for Christmas Day dinner - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and all the trimmings! It was a fantastic Christmas.
As I reflect on the passing year of 2018; I am saddened to have witnessed so much division among people. I hope 2019 will become a year of PEACE! How difficult is it to attain Peace?
According to Mother Teresa -
"Peace begins with a SMILE"
The wise and humble Mother Teresa also encouraged -
"Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
"Peace and war begin at home. If we truly want peace in the world, let us begin by loving one another in our own families. If we want to spread joy, we need for every family to have joy."
"No matter how tired you are, no matter how physically exhausting this work may be, it's beautiful to bring a smile into someone's life, to care for someone in need. What greater joy can there be?"
One of the greatest joys of my life is the gift of your friendship and trust. As your "Smile Engineer," I look forward to your visits, and together, we can bring PEACE to our world in 2019 - it begins with a SMILE!
Smiling yours into the New Year - Dr. Thomas Jusino
