What's In A Smile

Things that make me smile.......


Hey there....I woke up this morning thinking about happiness.  Things that make me smile!

There are so many little things that cross my path each day that brings a huge smile to my face.  I can even feel my heart smiling....


I know this may sound silly to some of you, but I have this little duck in my living room that makes me smile.....



Isn't it cute?  Not much to it, but this little duck is so sentimental to ME.  This little duck belonged to my mother.  As far back as I can remember, Missy (that is what I call it) sat on the window seal in our kitchen.  I can not tell you how many times I watched my mother take her rings off when she cleaned the kitchen and placed them in this little duck....YES, it makes me smile!



Here's another thing.  A red (something) with a lid on it...Not worth ten cents to anyone other than me.  To me this little red thing is priceless.  Why....it too belonged to my mother.  She must have loved it.  It's really a dust collector (as you can see) but I hope to keep it for a very long time.  It brings a smile to my face each time I see the not so pretty thing...



Then there is this precious little thing....Bella.  She is so cute with her one little eye.  The kids all make fun of her and call her "One Eye."  I love her just the way she is and she brings a lot of laughter to me.  Each morning, she gets so excited when she sees me and this brings a big smile to my face. 





I smiled when I saw my first Pomegranate of the season.  This is a new plant and I did not expect to see any fruit on it this year, but here it is.....




I smile when I see the beauty in each flower that blooms.



I smile each time I look at this beautiful gold plated rose.  I have had this rose for many years.  Sam gave it to me one year for our anniversary..   It truly is a real rose that has been plated in gold.  When I look at it, I think of the smile that I saw on his face the day he gave it to me...
It was a "I love you" smile......


And then there is this
smile....

Smiling is contagious just like laughing is.

Why not smile so people can see the joy of the Lord in you! I fuss at Ben all the time for not smiling.....he thinks I smile too much.
