What makes you smile?


What makes you smile?

I woke up this morning smiling. Well, why not? 

The daily news overflows with items that bring anything but a smile. Everyone is asking, "How much longer...?"

For today, I decided not to focus on how much longer or when. 

What if?

What if we thought about all the people, places, memories in our life that make us smile?

We can't change the world in which we live. The pandemic lingers on upsetting plans and dreams and holding us hostage. But wait! Maybe we can view this from a different perspective.

What if we put on our smile and looked out to find the special gifts of moments, new adventures that this change has brought? I have a few...
  • Simply sitting with the love of my life
  • Visiting with a life-long friend on the back porch of a historic home as the rain beat down on the tin roof
  • Laughing with friends and family on Facetime
I could go on, but you see if we stop and open our hearts to gratitude, the world can take on a brighter hue.

The clouds will part. The sun will shine. Why not wait with a smile?

Inspiring words . . .
The words to the "The Prayer" seem most fitting, and Andrea Bocelli and Celine Dion always inspire and make me smile.

Guide us with your grace
To a place where we'll be safe."

Be and become #yourbest today and every day.

With gratitude,
