As I mentioned, I was in the shower yesterday morning when I heard that small voice tell me "it's time." Of course I am used to hearing a small voice in side of my head, lol. Sometimes it is God telling me to pray for someone, other times it is my innerself telling me to do something, we all have that little voice, don't we. Anyway, the little voice told me that if I started yesterday I would end up around Christmas with my 100 days of smiles, so I figured it up and if I started yesterday I would end up around Christmas......ok, I decided it do it.
I read a book a few years ago, in the middle of us losing our home, our lives as we knew it to be, and our identity....a very depressing time for us. And it was a story about a woman and some of the things that she did to help herself thru a hard time and she did 100 days of smiles. She did something nice for someone else for 100 days, a stranger or someone that she knew. So I decided to try it myself that summer and it was great. I actually looked forward to doing something everyday for someone else.
So here I go again, my 100 days of smiles.
Day 1. I sent an e-mail letter to a very dear friend and expressed my love and appreciation of our friendship. I know she knows that I love her and appreciate her, but I wanted to put it into writing and send it to her. I am sure she smiled, and depending if yesterday was a weepy day for her she might have cried. lol. to my Beestest from you Bestest. (no, I didn't mispell the word.)
