The was posted today (Sunday, March 27). This proverb describes the act of greeting someone with a warm smile in terms of presenting a shining face. Such an act is compared to life itself because it grants a person the energy to deal with the issues of life. A friendly greeting is received as a sign of good will that may lead to good things in the future, the way a rain cloud carries with it the promise of a bountful harvest.
