There is Always Something to Smile About.
It was REALLY hard getting up for work on Monday!
In our part of the world, we started Daylight Savings Time and lost an hour of sleep Sunday morning when we had to turn the clocks forward.
Since I didn’t have to wake up at any certain time on Sunday, it was not a problem.
But when the alarm went off at 5 am on Monday, I said, “What the whaaaat?!?!”
I skipped my morning treadmill routine and went back to sleep until 6 am.
Still didn’t want to get up…. but I did.
The upside to this crazy ritual is that it now stays light later, and Charlie and I were able to walk outside after work.
When Charlie and I go for a walk, we almost always take the same route, so I make it a point to always try to see something new.
It was on our way back that I spied a smiley face painted on this old tree stump that has obviously been there a while.
This was the first time I saw it.
And I smiled.
There is always something to smile about!
Cheers & Hugs,
I know that this may sound cliche,
but won’t you give it a try today?
When you see someone whose eyes are dim,
greet them with a wide, happy grin?
Show those dimples and pearly whites,
it may just be their day’s highlight.
A smile is contagious and fun to spread.
Just do it, you’ll see – full speed ahead!
It could be the cure that heals the blues,
maybe even the common cold and flu.
It’s easy, and it is free to give.
it can even be a kind forgive.
A simple smile can spread some light,
and be the way to make a day bright.
It’s a gesture, it’s a gift,
it can be a huge lift.
If everyone tried this once per day,
imagine how lovely… imagine how gay.
You can turn the world on with your smile
You can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile.
Cheers & Hugs,
RIP Mary Tyler Moore – Your smile will be remembered
