Somewhere out there someone has lost their smile. Share a pic on our Facebook page today of what makes you smile and help give a smile to someone who needs it! #tkwshareasmile
I started this movement a few weeks back on Facebook where I needed help smiling. I lost my reason to smile. The result was incredible. The outpouring of love from you all was truly overwhelming. Then what surprised me, and moved me to tears, were the private emails and messages from folks thanking me for this. They, too, lost their smile. Some are battling cancer, some a heart-crushing loss of a loved one, some that just are down on their luck.
That’s when it made me think. If a seemingly, selfish act (my post) can help me and so many others than this needs to be a regular posting on my site and Facebook. In a world where there is so much hate and negativity, let’s help give others hope by simply sharing a smile. Post a pic on Facebook of what makes you smile – it can be your kids, your fur babies, a saying, sunrise, or just a plate of crispy bacon. Everywhere I’ll capture some of those images and compile them into a collage to share with those of you that aren’t on Facebook.
The images are just so heartwarming as are the stories that posted with them. From the birth of a newborn to teaching a grand-daughter how to make pizza. This is what makes me smile. It’s the simple things in live folks.
Smiles are free and unlimited to give. Spare one of yours for someone who needs it! To see last week’s posting and stories, check it out on Facebook! A mother’s pride overflows as she shares the news that her daughter was recently accepted into a National Honor Society! The pride of all the fur babies is just so cute I can’t stand it! Seriously I want to play with all of your puppies and kitties! Dave shared a picture of what looked like him hugging a real monkey. Yeah this one freaked me out as I’m scared of monkeys but as I looked closer and read his post I had to chuckle. Betty’s sunrise is simply breath-taking! And Heather, hey this is a judgement-free zone. You go on with your bad self having that beer on a Wednesday! I’m kinda jealous girlfriend!
But this is what this is about – just sharing and being real. These pictures make so many people smile and warms their heart. I have a dear friend that is starting chemo in a few weeks and I know this will help him in some small way. It’s a way to show that even though we’ve never met and you live a bajillion miles away, I’m thinking about you.
So today, post a picture on this Facebook thread (you can’t add pictures here) about what makes you happy and tag it with hashtag #tkwshareasmile. Keep it family friendly, please.
