Hi all. Yes, I am back after taking a week off of the Smile. And, as you may guess, that is what my smile is about.
I spent a week traveling to Ohio to visit family. It was the first time I saw them in two years. It was nice to see everyone and catch up face-to-face. One thing that had to be seen face to face were the bees.
We gave my dad a hive for Christmas. He has really been enjoying working with the bees.
There was a lot of socializing, eating, etc. We also did a few activities, like kayaking and taking walks.
One great thing about where my parents live is that there are a lot of bald eagles around. Sitting on the beach waiting for my turn to use the kayak, an eagle flew over at a very low altitude and landed in a tree. Here is one of the photos.
But, as I originally said, the whole seeing family after two years, was what it was all about.
My smile for the week was visiting family in Ohio.
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).
