Hi all and welcome to the second week of The Weekly Smile! There was a lot to smile about this last week. I had some good conversations with family members and there were a few birthdays in that area. In general things went well. But I have 2 1/2 smiles for this week.
The first is The Weekly Smile itself. It did much better than I expected. We had 19 entries! And there was a lot of going back and forth between people. That is where it all happens – thinking positive thoughts and writing a post is a good start, but the sharing is where it turns into a great event. You cane see last week’s smiles here.
My other smile is split, health and humor. I saw so many examples of humor over the last week. Not all were jokes (though there were jokes) or laugh-out-louds (though I did laugh out loud). No, some were just instances of people enjoying life with a wink and a smile. Like seeing the car that still had reindeer antlers on their car, even though it’s approaching mid-January. I passed the car at a stop and noticed the very large red Rudolph nose on the front of the car. What made the moment better was that the car in front of me had vanity plates that said “Aloha”. It was a very cold day in New Hampshire, but here was a bit of Hawaiian peace and compassion sitting right next to a Rudolph car. What could be better?
As laughter is the best medicine, I always think of health and humor together. I had a doctor’s appointment and am relatively healthy. Why this is so good and smile worthy is that I took blood pressure medicine up until two years ago. My blood pressure is still good and I’m as healthy as ever. I hope I have many years to smile and laugh and, better yet, share those smiles with the people around me bot physically and virtually, for many years to come :)
If you haven’t seen it, here is a little background to The Weekly Smile as well as some quick guidelines.
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the linky. While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
