For the most part, last week was a pretty good week with a lot of smiles, but there is one that I want to bring out.
On Tuesday our local Lions Club had our annual “end of year” meeting. In ways the club follows a school year with the summer having a minimum number of more social meetings. In September we will start our working meetings with new officers in place. Actually, the officers were put in place on Tuesday, so after two years, I am no longer the local club’s president.
Besides the smile about no longer being president, the meeting itself was a big smile. I think our last face-to-face meeting was back in February 2020 and had maybe 8 people attend. So we had a face-to-face meeting with 13 people. Not a huge number, but it was nice. We had it at a local restaurant. We reserved a room overlooking the river and had a buffet diner. It was very good. This was the first time I sat down in a restaurant since late February, 2020.
My big smile is not only a good meeting with face to face interactions with people I haven’t seen in a while, but a first step back to normal after over a year.
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).
