Nice idea, Cindy, thanks!

I smiled yesterday because of all the nice comments JJ and everyone made about me on this forum. You're all so sweet!

I smiled because I had a light bulb moment and created a delicious and healthy dish this morning. I am posting it in the recipe section. OH so yummy.

Thoughts about the church parties I went to as a child.The hall where today I smiled

The adults set the scene
Trimmed the tree
Hung stars at the windows
Put holly on window sills

They wrapped presents
someone’s Uncle became Santa
planned with precision
the Sunday school party

each year for all of my childhood
always on Christmas Eve
a rolling booking in the church hall
tradition and set in memories bank

long tables set with goodies
ice cream at half time
the hush when the lights went off
someone’s baby sister always cried

but I knew the format
saw the nod ..the wink
worked out the system
smallest to the tallest

for me….a baby boomer
a war just newly past
knew nothing of hostility
just warmth and joy and God

My turn now to serve there
Same hall same church same God
Lingering kindly in the shadows
Those lovely folks of old

I smiled today because the UPS man dropped off the Christmas present I ordered my 90 year old MOM and it was perfect. I had been looking in all the stores but found it online instead. Just what I was looking for, the color, size and style. Mom will love it.

I smiled when I got a bunch of goodies at our local animal shelter's flea market. (Yes, appropriate event at an animal shelter!) The money goes to help the animals and we get some bargains - win/win!

I am smiling right now as I read about what others smile about.

I smiled today when I looked outside and the sun was shining bright and the sky was a gorgeous blue. Beautiful day.

I smiled today because we celebrated Thanksgiving. The food was delicious, everybody was happy, and my DILS cleaned the kitchen. I smiled today because our 9 month old granddaughter squealed for joy when she saw me, and stretched out her pudgy baby arms towards me.
Today was a piece of heaven for me. In my heart, I'm still smiling.
