Something to Smile About

Give Me a Reason to Smile



  The smell of fresh baby powder

  The smile of a newborn baby

 Mom seeing her daughter for the first time in her wedding dress

A dad seeing his son graduate from high school

A red rose in full bloom

Lush fresh-cut green grass

Dark chocolate


Pure love

A baby’s first steps

Bright orange sunrises and purple sunsets

Rainbows after a rain

Letter from a friend

Breakfast in bed

A cat playing with a shoestring

Playing my favorite songs on the radio and singing along in the car

Eating a full plate of spaghetti with my favorite homemade sauce

Cherry cheese cake

Popcorn and a movie at home

Talking to old friends on the phone about our days of childhood

Going barefoot in the summertime

Jumping in the pool on the first day of summer and making a big splash with a cannonball

Someone who says thank you

Raindrops on an umbrella

Cloudy days that make me stop and think

Wise words



Tears that heal and cleanse after it rains in life

Chocolate chip cookies


Flying kites on a sunny and windy day


Old cartoons

Mexican food with lots of hot peppers

A day at the beach and feeling the cold sand squish between my toes in the heat of the day with gulls flying high above

Colored water fountains at night dancing to music

The smell of hot dogs, mustard, and relish at a baseball game

Hearing the announcer at a pro baseball game say “Let’s Play Ball”

Birds singing in the morning to each other

Closing my eyes and feeling the gentle warm breeze brush against my face as I hear the leaves of the trees rubbing against each other nearby

Seeing the pinpoints of bright light against GOD’s black blanket on a clear night

Blowing soap bubbles with an entire bottle of liquid soap to see how big I can make the bubbles

Spending time with my best friend

Salsa and chips

Hope of heaven and what is yet to come

A glass of cold ice tea on a hot humid day as droplets of moisture run down all along the outside of the glass

Reading a good book I love


Making someone else happy

Building a snowman and making angels in the snow

Listening to the waves crash along the shoreline at the beach and then wait for them to return with reinforcements

Sound of silence after someone has stated something of profound truth

Being alone if I want to be and with people if I want to be

Those moments of calm after a storm and just before

The learning that results in the storms of life

Knowing GOD is with us always and will never leave us or forsake us

Knowing the answer to a question

Relaxing after a long week

    Thank You Tony 🙂 for this 100% smile-worthy list! There’s just one more thing I’d like to add…
    At the beginning of July, I wrote a blog post plea for HPP. And for the past couple of weeks, we’ve been smiling inside and out because the doctors finally called with hubby’s approval to begin Asfotase Alfa HPP treatment 😀 That’s the news we’ve been waiting, hoping and praying to hear for SO very long. There were times when we thought this news might never come… But now, praise God, it’s here! The car is packed and we’re driving to Winnipeg to begin the healing process!!!!!!!!!
    At the time of my HPP post, only Japan had approved the Asfotase Alfa treatment. Canada and Europe have now approved it, as well! My sincere thanks to everyone who shared and/or signed the online petition from my HPP post. Special thanks to Laura @ In My Words, for reblogging that post!
    So that’s all for now… Looking forward to connecting via hotel WiFi for the next week… Thanks again and ttys 😀 ♥ Jackie
