Smile! It's the Perfect Week to do it!
By Jill Feilmeier on August 7, 2012 in Just for Kicks
The expressions you make with your face go a long way to projecting your mood to the people around you. Someone with a scowl might be harder to approach compared with someone who has a smile.
Here at Delta Dental of Iowa, we believe in celebrating the smile! It is one facial expression that shows everyone around the kind of mood you are in!you that you are enjoying the activity you are participating in. Whether it is an interesting conversation or watching your favorite movie, everyone has at least one thing in their life that causes them to smile.
In honor of National Smile Week (Aug 5-11) we asked our employees to tell us about one thing that makes them smile. Read on for their reasons!
Exercising my right to freedom
Seeing elderly people hold hands / in love, children giggling, comedy
The happy faces of my grandchildren!

Family and Friends, reminiscing , volunteering, being able to help others less fortunate than myself, fresh garden produce, waterfalls, new growth in Spring, fall colors of Autumn, SNOW!!
Hearing my grandchild's voice upon answering my phone
My Granddaughter, Sunshine, warm weather

Skyping with my daughters
My family makes me smile
Family Nights – anytime our family is together and we can connect and laugh and have a good time making memories
First and always – my grandson
Hearing my children's laughter
#1 – Grandchildren, family get-togethers, volunteering, helping others, being with friends
When my son calls me his “LOVE”
My daughter's face on Christmas morning and Puppies
Tickling my son until he laughs, and then he asks me to do it again
Sweet corn stands
Shopping for Christmas presents in early November & dancing to the beat of my own drum
Seeing my grandchildren
Our cat at home had a litter of kittens. It makes me smile to watch them play with each other
My kinds running, yelling “Mommy!” when I get home from work
Fridays at 4:00 p.m. & laughter from my kids

The laughter of a child
Memories of special moments with family and friends, baby animals, questions asked by young children, my children
– Jodi Becker
A smiling baby's face, fresh flowers in a vase, potpourri in a jar, the smell of a brand new car, peanut butter and jelly on toast, a red tricycle that I can coast, meeting and greeting old and new friends; all these bring me smiles that never end.
