I actually have a lot of smiles this week, but will stick with a simple one.
Yesterday was a beautiful day. It was warm but with a nice breeze. The dogs are still getting used to the new place. I defined some boundaries outback (showing the dogs the limits – they understand) and letting them play. Idina mostly sniffed around the edges while Fiyero wanted to play ball. When he got hot he would hunker down in the flower beds. Yeah, not great,but it did cool him down. It was simple. We really didn’t do a whole lot, mostly hung out. But you could tell by their faces that they were doggy heaven.
That was my smile for last week, playing with the dogs in the nice shady back yard.
What made you smile?
Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week. Why don’t you share it? I hope you can join in!
Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas. If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity. Don’t smile about the misfortune of others. Don’t smile in a way to excludes others. Make sure a 12 year old can read it.
And remember, the Smile can be anything, large or small. Nothing, nothing at all is too small for a Smile! Sometimes taking time to notice those small, every day smiles is more important than those once in a lifetime huge ones :)
To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile. Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one) (Note – pingbacks have been very inconsistent – please leave a comment :) ). You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me). Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile. (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).
Try to use the hashtag #WeeklySmile when you use Twitter or other social media that uses hashtags. I searched Twitter and found that #weeklysmile had been used only a handful of times back in 2012 and 2013. It hasn’t been used since. So it’s ours! I also registered it on Twubs.
You can use the graphic at the top. It is the official graphic for the event.
Now go out there and find something to smile about! :)
