I have missed out on Trent’s Weekly smile for the last couple of weeks as I had been feeling as though there was not much to smile about in the world and even my own life seemed to be a bit on the flat side. Time I felt to take myself in hand. How could I be feeling low when every morning started with a walk along the river with scenery that can only fill the heart with joy and yes, cause a smile.
Then I found a story about a first grade teacher who each year had her class decorate material which she made into a dress that she wore on the last day of the school year. What a wonderful way to make those kids proud of themselves and their efforts and also a wonderful way to remember every student taught. You can see the dress here. Quilts could have the same effect but with limited exposure. This really made me smile.
And then I came across Jimmy Craig’s cartoons of animals can talk. and my smile grew and grew.
So yes, when you look, there certainly are lots of things to smile about.
