Happy Spring everyone! OK, everyone in the northern hemisphere – happy autumn to those in the southern! It has been warm the last few days and it will stay pretty warm coming up, reaching 72 F/22 C later this week. I have seen my first crocuses, though not in my yard. It is nice. But that isn’t my smile.
Because of restrictions due to the virus, our Lions Club hasn’t had the usual fund raisers so we decided to do a raffle. We talked to some local restaurants and a hardware store and got some donations. A few members also mad some large donations to the raffle. We sent a mailer to address in town and had a good response!
A few of us met on Saturday at a local downtown “park” (It is tiny, shoved between buildings) and did the drawing. I am the president this year, so I gave a little speech and did the drawing (I didn’t buy tickets, so…). It all went well. I was hoping to have a video to post, but I haven’t seen it yet (it might be awful anyway ;) ).
My smile this week is seeing all of these people in person, even if we were all wearing masks, and drawing the winners from the very successful raffle!
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).
