Smile and the Whole World Smile With You

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 🙂

I believe in God, love and life! Married to my friend, mentor and rock. We have been blessed with two beautiful girls. My personal journey provides opportunities for me to empower individuals to lead better lives. I have had a real desire to work with people for a long time and have always been fascinated with human behaviour and understanding how the mind works.
I love the following quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. “Remember that children, marriages and flower gardens reflect the kind of care they get”

Thank you for sharing!!.. and thank you for your smile, makes this ole world a better place… I am smiling because I woke up on the green side of the grass… 🙂

Until we meet again..
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.

Henrietta this is really lovely. What a beautiful picture you bring to us with your words. Children laughing is a blessing to hear. This has been so difficult for everyone. I appreciate your talking about how the rain, smell, and laughter do bring hope. So true sweet Henrietta. ❤️🤗love Joni
