It is National Smile Week!

A heart, jumping up and down while smiling in loveYes, today is the start of National Smile Week! While I personally think every week should be a "smile" week, let's make a point of celebrating this "national" week, but being intentional about smiling! 

So, what do we have to smile about? Well, I have so much to smile about, including . . .
  • My wonderful family! I have a husband who is gift from God - we just celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary! We met on a volcano . . . which by the way, if you are looking for an amazing place to take a vacation, I highly recommend Shasta County California with Mt. Lassen, Mt. Shasta, Shasta Lake the Lava Tubes and so much more! Check this link for the wonderful things in Shasta county which will make you smile for sure! 
  • My daughter, son and daughter-in-law . . . they are also gifts from the hand of God and I love all three of them!
  • My grandsons! Josiah, Caleb and Shane make my heart happy and I most definitely smile whenever I even think of these three gifts from the hand of God!
  • My parents, siblings, and sibling-in-laws - yes, I have been blessed with a wonderful family!
  • A church where the pastors live what they preach, the people are genuine and I can serve and experience joy!
  • Most importantly, God's love! If I had no other "reason" to smile, knowing God loves me is enough of a reason to put a smile on my face permanently!
These are just a few of the things I have to smile about! What do you have to smile about?

  1. Your right it is easy to forget about Jesus when we have so many beautiful blessings. My wonderful family two sweet granddaughters, one of them I care for five days a week. And a wonderful church I serve at and get to fulfill my passion. I am so blessed! Can't help but smile :)
