What Makes YOUR Heart Smile?


It is unbelievable how one bad attitude can affect an entire day. I really didn’t want to crawl out of bed anyway today but when I came out to the kitchen and told my son he had to take his shorts and shirt sleeves off, he was furious. That’s when the day started to spiral downward. My mood was falling out from underneath me and I was feeling aggravated, all because I expected him to wear winter clothes on a cold day. Once I got home from driving him to school, I checked into Facebook to find an adorable picture of my two month old nephew. That’s all it took to remind me of all the beautiful blessing that came into my life over the last year. Sure, things can take a turn for the worst. Sometimes we can have a bad week or maybe even a month, but when I look at all the wonderful things that have happened over the past year, the bad things seem to melt away. They will never entirely disappear but they are so much smaller sitting next to the things that have been so amazing.

Last night my husband and I had a conversation about whether our glass felt half empty or have full. Although we couldn’t agree on the interpretation of which was positive and which was negative, there is no doubt when I tell you my heart is full, I am feeling fully blessed despite the days that left me feeling worn and empty.

Find something to focus on today that makes your heart smile. What is that something for you? I’d love to hear about it. Let’s share something good today.

  1. My glass is usually half full, though Hubby’s depends on the circumstances and his mood, when he will probably respond with a specific quantity, or that someone else has drunk it.
    I suppose the secret is knowing where the ‘tap’ is and for us we draw from each other. That in itself is a blessing.

    for me, and you probably know this form my blog, but composing music is my joy, whether it’s a weird synthy/industrial/ambient composition or something more akin to what a lot of people would consider music, that’s the one activity I go to most of the time.
