What makes you smile?


Did you know that it takes over 30 muscles to frown and only about 16 muscles to smile! Some days it's not easy to smile. We all have days like these. Every once in awhile. The days where nothing seems to go right. It starts from the second that you step out of bed. It has been proven somewhere by someone that the physical act of smiling brings about physiological changes that will make you feel happy. :) I believe it! I think to myself, "How can it not?" I have had this transformation many times. In fact, when Max plays his "I see your happy smile" game, I can not help but to feel happiness. The second I start to smile I instantaneously feel happy. It works like a charm every time. Sitting here typing this blog, I have had so many happy thoughts that have created lots of smiles. It's those times when we feel a little grumpy that it is a bit more difficult to dig out that "Happy Smile." What makes you smile?

The 4 smiles I'm looking at make me smile. What a great way to start the day! I also smile when the sun shines and I can work in my rose garden. The only thing better than that is smooching the checks of all my little smiling grand babies. Thanks for taking the time to share your memories with this far away Grandmama! I Love You ALL!

Sure did make Adam and me smile tonight. It's so strange to see Max talk, we haven't seen him since all he would say is "SHOPPING!!" and "mo-go" and make animal sounds. It has been too long. Thanks for sharing. We miss ya all tons!
