Cheri Speak

Is this mic on?

A Face In The Crowd

Humor is essential to life.

I mean, come on, who goes through life without ever cracking a smile?

Not me, and surely not YOU!

I try to make sure laughter touches me daily, especially on those days that a smile seems far from ever reaching the corners of my mouth.

In fact, I try to make sure that smile becomes contagious so that others can experience the random silliness that I do.

One of my daughters and I capture these smiles anywhere we see them and text them to each other. It’s a nice touch to our relationship, especially when we are in different states as we are now.

As I have written about before, smiles are everywhere and can accost you at unexpected moments if you are open to seeing them.

Even the aliens are smiling at us!

In fact, as you will see below, smiles come in all ethnicities!

I have become so aware that the smiles (and even “sad faces”) are there, that now, everywhere I go I see them!

You can see them too!

The only requirement is being aware they are there.

Do you see the face in the tree above? If not, then you are not looking! It is as plain to see as this one –> :p and just the other day as I was sitting on my Mother’s porch for the first time since she passed away two-years ago, I looked up as I was lost in sad thoughts and that tree was grinning at me.

Who wouldn’t smile back?

Even when it comes to doing things we don’t want to do — like household chores, a smiley is there to egg us on to get the job done.

What smiles have YOU seen today? I’d love to see!
