{Smiles that Shine}

Do you ever come across a filed-away image of yourself that is just silly?
For some reason the image makes you stop and smile
because you remember how it felt in that moment and
the people that surrounded you were filled with just so much joy
that the laughter was almost tangible?
Well, I ran across this image today. Yes, it is silly, but I don't care.
It was one of those days that I laughed so hard I was literally tearing up.
p.s. No, I don't have a tongue like my niece's below for such an occassion as getting icing off
one's nose, but the laughter in that moment was worth every second.

"A smile starts on the lips,
A grin spreads to the eyes,
A chuckle come from the belly;
But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul,
Overflows, and bubbles all around!"
C. B.

It just does!

I hope you smile so much this weekend that you literally shine!
