  One Friday,12-year-old Janet was going to stay all night with her friend Amy.They had to walk by Dawson’s house on the way to Amy’s house.But as they got close,Janet saw him sitting on his front porch and suggested they cross over to the other side of the street.Like most of the children,she was scared of the old man because of the stories she’d heard about him.
  Amy said that they needn’t worry and Mr Dawson wouldn’t hurt anyone.Still,Janet was growing more nervous with each step closer to the old man’s house.When they got close enough,Dawson looked up with his usual frown.But when he saw it was Amy,a broad smile changed his entire face as he said,“Hello,Amy.I see you’ve got a little friend with you today.”
  Amy smiled back and told him that Janet was staying overnight and they were going to listen to music and play games.Dawson told them that sounded fun,and offered them each a fresh apple picked off his tree.They gladly accepted them.Dawson had the best apples in town.
  When they left Dawson,Janet asked Amy,“Everyone says he’s the meanest man in town.Why was he so nice to us?”
  “When I first walked past his house,he wasn’t very friendly and I was afraid of him,”Amy said,“but I pretended he was wearing an invisible smile.So I always smiled back at him.It took a while,but one day he half-smiled back at me.After some more time,he started smiling real smiles and then started talking to me.At first,it was just a‘hello,’then he talked more.He always offers me an apple now,and is always very kind to me.”
  “An invisible smile?”questioned Janet.“Yes,”answered Amy,“my grandma told me that if I pretended to see an invisible smile on his face and I smiled back at him,then sooner or later he would really smile.Grandma says smiles are contagious.”
  If we remember what Amy’s grandma said,that everyone wears an invisible smile,we too will find that most people can’t resist our smile after a while.
  It’s so easy to get caught up in everyday life that we forget how simple it can be to bring cheer to ourselves and others.Giving a smile away takes so little effort and time.Let’s make sure we’re not the one that others have to think is wearing an invisible smile.
