Put a smile on your face

This last year has been chock full of struggles for me. This coming year doesn't look so good either. I think one thing I like about blogging is that you can choose to hide your struggles if you want, or at least focus on the good things in your life.

When my paternal grandma was dying of cancer she still always asked how you were doing and would pray for you. It inspired me that she was able to look past her own issues and focus on someone else. I try to emulate her as much as I can. Along with this idea, I also have been making myself count my blessings. These are the things that put a smile on my face.

Here are some of the recent "Smile Makers" from my summer. Enjoy!

The beach and a daughter not being sassy!
Nothing sweeter than blackberries you just picked!

Love Love Love the water

Friends all around

  1. Ohhhhh... I hear ya, mama. :) Been that sort of a summer for me as well, but there really are *so many* blessings when we take the time to focus on them. :)

    Thanks for dropping by Happy Hour! Happy weekend to you!
