Some Things That Made Me Smile

Last week was a good week and a busy week, but not a very exciting week. Even though there were no big events there were things that made me smile and a week with some smiles is a good week.

When you are 2 1/2 years old and you miss or resist your nap for a few days it is bound to catch up with you. . This picture made me smile.


This happened about 10 miles up the road from us, but apparently it was on the news around the country. The story was not so funny but an article about it in our local paper said that the girl's parents were trying to help her look at it as a positive experience and that made me smile. 


I was playing a pretend game with 5 yr old EJ and 2 1/2 yr old Beck this week. Some of their stuffed animals  and I had been hurt somehow and EJ and Beck were the ambulance drivers taking us to the hospital. On the way to the hospital we had to stop at Starbucks for a few lattes and some tea. I  wasn't sure whether to be disturbed or pleased that even in an "emergency" EJ and Beck kept my priorities in mind, but it made me smile.


Our friend, 8 yr old Addison, who was diagnosed with Leukemia three years ago this month is two months away from completing a very rough three years of treatment. The words below were the fortune in a fortune cookie he got at the end of a Chinese meal recently. Seeing Addison's brave smile always makes me smile.


Has there been something that made you smile lately?

  15. I would definitely want a French Vanilla coffee on the way to the emergency department! I love the photo and the story of the girl. Sometimes I want to choke my hubby so I can empathize.
    It made me smile when we finally sold the house. Big smiles all around the family.

  16. Oh Addison :-)

    If only I could nap like that anywhere.

    The trip to Starbucks is a hoot.

    And the lady arrested-- I'm not sure what's crazier... her of the newspaper for printing the "article" complete with the song name. Ha!

    Looks like life is good for you Jeanie! xo jj
