Hi all! It was a weird week, but in some ways a very special week. I’ll narrow it down even more: Saturday was a special day! Yep. One of the most special days of the year.
OK, I do love Halloween – Autumn is by far my favorite time of year and Halloween caps it off perfectly, but that is not what I was talking about. You see, I made one more journey around our home star! I wrote that statement before and it seems everyone missed it, so I may need to explain further…
I had a birthday on Saturday.
I really didn’t do much. Walks outside, watching the snow melt (yes, snow!). Normal things like that. There were some gifts and a nice dinner (take out from a good restaurant). Mostly it was very low key, but that is how I like it. As I often say, there is always a party on my birthday, but I’m usually not invited ;) And truthfully, introvert me prefers it that way.
That is my smile for the week, celebrating another birthday.
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.
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).
