When you lose someone you love it is hard to imagine that you will ever smile again, and yet in my case, when I think about my mother, the very first thing I do is smile. The woman who said, “You gotta laugh,” just had a way about her—she loved life—food, fashion, fabulous parties—and she taught me in everything she did, that come what may, you can always find something to smile about. When I get up each morning and round the corner into the hallway that leads to my kitchen, I smile back at her beaming face that illuminates the niche her photograph now sits in.
Smile, she seems to be saying, and so I do—for her—for me.
Things that make me smile right now:
A steaming cup of joe—Julius Meinl President Blend is my fav—don’t think I could start my day without it.
Learning my favorite actress,like me, believes in ghosts.
And finally, how can I not smile knowing that my parents are together again after more than 25-years of being apart. As my husband recently said, “Now, every night is Saturday night for your mom and dad.”
Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Hope you find countless reasons to smile.
