Although it is frigid out there this morning, it looks like Spring might actually be here! I know, it was a relatively mild winter, so I don’t have a lot to complain about, yet the arrival of spring is always welcomed.
When I was on Cape Cod at the end of the week, I saw many flowers in bloom. My favorites were the snowdrops. Here are some in front of my house.
Back up in New Hampshire, I was a little surprised to see two crocuses, one purple and one white. Here is the purple one, though in this phone photo it is a little out of focus.
We will still see a bit of cold weather, but there are signs of spring in the air! I will be sure to get out as much as possible to enjoy it :)
That was my smile for the week, seeing early spring flowers.
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! :)
