Smiles On a cool December day my classmates and me went to a rest home to sing Christmas carols to the elderly At the I was in 4th grade and it was my first time going to a place like this and I couldnt help but feeling a little nervous but at the same time I was anxious My teacher Mrs Mello gave us all jobs such as passing around cookies and cards we made ahead of time My job was the hardest of them all I was to go around and talk with people and ask them what they were doing for the holidays and questions like that There was no turning back now I was too far in People started to file into the small room decorated with spirited streamers paper chains garlands and ornaments to help make the room feel welcome and harm with holiday spirit Mrs Mello had warned us all before that some would be sweet while others wouldnt and then said to me Most of them would enjoy a friendly smile for their holidays For some thats all they need to brighten up their holidays so go ahead and smile The smiling I knew I could handle but I wasnt quite sure about what she meant when she said for some thats all they need to lighten up their holidays I began smiling as we began to sing our first song Silent Night I made sure that I smiled the most sincere smile I could as I kept on singing I looked into their eyes and received smiles back but with others I didnt Even though many didnt smile back it didnt discourage me so I kept on smiling There was one particular woman who looked as if she was very old and seemed lonely To this day I remember exactly what she was wearing She was dressing in a light colored pink T-shirt with lightly colored tan
