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! The pride of the parents showing their gorgeous kids! My heart just swells with love when I read these stories! Read about Lisa’s green thumb (super jealous girlfriend!) on how’s in her garden transplanting flowers! And the GORGEOUS quilt Robin is making. I wish I could do that! And the fur babies! Man I so miss having a pet! Then there’s Chrissy’s breathtaking photos of the mountains! And Michele showing off her sister Margie. I’ve known these girls for a million years as we all grew up together. I’m so happy we’re all back in touch! And Kate.. I seriously now want a baby goat!
Nick said it right with his post “The Whole World Smiles with You”. I agree with you! When you smile everyone else smiles!
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.
