Thankful Thursday - A Smile


Every time you smile at someone, it's an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. Peace begins with a smile."  Mother Teresa


It's funny how a  simple smile can change everything. I can be in the most awful mood and then bump into someone on the street who flashes a smile at me, and all that awfulness melts. And the neat thing, a smile means the same thing in every language. For me, a smile is kindness and hope and some days I need both. Grateful for....

-today b/c it's a new day and anything and everything can happen.
-spring b/c everything is coming back to life...the snow's melting, flowers are starting to push up, birds that haven't been around are returning and people everywhere are smiling. Yep...spring is great.
-working together with a group of amazing women to take back a community centre that once was a place of hope to many. The people running it now changed it. Made it into a place where no one wants to go. We're fighting to turn it back around.
-mostly grateful for my faith. It's the one thing that never changes and which makes me smile everyday. 

Happy Thursday, Guys.
