I’m exhausted because of the busyness I have been experiencing these past few days and perhaps even weeks, months and over the past year. I am however so thankful for it all and this just brings a huge smile to my face. I’m a day late writing here, but it feels so great being able to express myself and I’m sure many a one can relate.
I smile as I hear the gentle sound of the rain,
Bringing calm to my inner self and mental state
I smile when I smell the earthy scent,
Produced by the rain as it touches the dry soil,
I smile because of the gentle reminders,
Reminding us that the soil is earth’s fragile skin
I smile because rain brings along hope,
The hope for new life, new growth,
I smile as we embark upon spring
I smile as the earth seems to come to life again
I hear the happy sound of children,
Experiencing freedom after indoors for a very long time
I smile, knowing happiness is contagious, and the only
Outbreak will be more laughter and happy screams.
I smile as I welcome the contentment of family and friends
The ripple effect is happiness, peace, and more smiles
I smile as I’m inspired to reach out in love
Love that will bring hope and smiles to the world.
And of course, I’m humming along to When You’re Smiling (The Whole World Smiles With You) – Louis Armstrong
What are you smiling about 🙂
