Smiles Makes All The Difference

I was reading blogs yesterday – okay today seeing as this is scheduled as my computer is going to be on a fix haul this weekend. I was reading Michelle Marie‘s blog, and she was saying that she was in a bad mood, and then she had to take her daughter to the doctor’s as she had a fall and injured her knee. Although she was in pain, she still managed to smile, and it made Michelle realise that there’s a reason to smile all the time, and smiling can make all the difference.

I went to take some photos at the rowing club on Thursday evening as one of the rowers was heading off to Bristol to do her final year at University. I saw an old couple sitting on their steps with blankets over their legs and I thought it was so sweet. I waved to them and said “good evening”. The woman gave me such a huge smile and waved so much I thought her arm was going to fall off. It made me smile knowing how happy she was that I had acknowledged her. I did think of asking for a photo of them, but changed my mind.

Michelle found that if her daughter could smile in the face of adversity, then so could she. I smiled and said good evening to a woman, and that smile she gave me was worth a billion smiles. So a smile can make all the difference. Smile. It’s good for you.

Hope you all have a great weekend

  1. Great post. It is about appreciating what we have, not what we want to have or think we need to have. I have been reading books written by women in the 19th century and they emphasize the inner beauty of people – not possessions or money. We don’t place enough worth on inner beauty today. 🙂

  2. On FB today I saw a video of a boy about 10. His parents gave him a gift and when he open it he got a cutting board. He was grateful, thanked his parents and gave them hugs and told them he can’t wait to cut meat. The parents then surprised him with a second gift. This one was what he wanted. When he unwrapped the paper inside was a sneaker box, inside the sneaker box was his true gift. He was in shock. He started crying thanking his parents huging them he was totally happy. The gift was a tablet. The point is he wasn’t disappointed with the cutting board he was thankful regardless and even though he didn’t get what he wanted.

    • Kids like that are awesome. The fact that they can hide whether they like something or not and pretend they do. Then you get the ones who get a black toy instead of a nearly black toy and throw it away calling their parents stupid. Ones like the one you said are a wonder and are likely to try and spread happiness wherever they go

  3. That is so sweet about the couple on the steps 🙂

    I have the “expanded” version of that owl graphic saved on my phone, it’s one of my “go to” pics when I need those reminders.
