However, my heart is so full today that I can't help posting about one of my favorite blessings.
I am thankful for smiles.
I'm thankful for the beehive who sat in front of me and shared her radiant spirit. Her sparkly shoes and sweet giggle brought a smile to my face. It's good to be reminded that sometimes we need to take a step back and feel the joy of life without all the drama of high school. They say a little child shall lead them, but today it was a Beehive who lead this Laurel along.
I'm thankful for the odd sounding noise that came from the wall outside of the church bathroom today. Our chapel has been having trouble with the heater breaking and making odd noises. I'm pretty sure the heater was trying to pry itself out of the wall with a pick axe or something during Young Women's. [Either that or somebody gave the CTR 5's sling shots and an endless supply of bouncy balls. Or maybe a family of squirrels made their home in the rafters and decided to play a nice game of bowling.] Whatever the source of the popping racket, I must admit I am thankful for the laughter it brought to the room. It was kind of a laugh or cry situation, and I'm grateful we could all smile and giggle about it.
I'm grateful for the smile that came across my face when I realized my favorite chocolate chip ice cream was still in the freezer and hadn't yet been devoured by my dessert loving family.
I'm thankful for my cat who pounced me like a cougar today and tried to eat the inside of a pumpkin. There's nothing a like a sweet animal to bring a smile to your face. [And you've ever seen a kitty try to eat pumpkin, it is quite an interesting sight. The look on her face was priceless.]
What makes you smile?
