While visiting family at a farm in rural Iowa, I stepped outside to photograph some of the animals and sights of rural farm life. In doing so, I came across a very happy and friendly cow who was incredibly eager to pose for photos. I'd never seen anything like it and as I looked back at the image I captured, I couldn't help but think of the power of smiling.
A smile is a universal language that even animals understand.
It's incredibly simple and happens in a flash, but the memory of it can last forever.
It may not seem like much to you at the moment, but it may mean the world to someone else.
Life is beautiful. Smile big and, like the cow in the photo, make everyone wonder what you're up to!
