What makes me Smile

I smile at lots of stuff.

  • My granddaughter the most.

  • Heading to the beach on one of those glorious summer days in August when the Atlantic is warm.

  • Seeing an unusual bird on the way.

The Hereford Lighthouse gardens

A visit from a dragonfly on the beach, just sitting for a spell on the arm of my chair!

Miss dragonfly was so close we could see her cleaning her head!

It made us both smile! My daughter got her face up close to it's!

And she still ddn't fly away

And a finger laid next to her didn't even budge her,

All these things made me smile last week. The thing about life that's good is, there's always something to make us smile. Different each day.
When you think about yesterday, what made you smile ? or laugh out loud?
How about this morning? Maybe something cute your little boy or girl did.
Maybe a treasure you found out thrifting?

I want to hear what has made you crack a grin lately. Let me know. I love your comments. They make me feel connected with you.
There is a fun photo challenge and it's never to late to join it.
 This is week 2 and the challenge is What makes You Smile? Come have some fun.
