"S" is for Smiling

So I am sappy! I see life differently as I age! I hear these political ads, lies, more lies and lies again! I hear people sharing their reasons why they are voting for this candidate or that! I smile. I smile very sweetly and plead the 5th amendment! As long as it is there to plead I will smile and nod my head! I like to agree to disagree! There are so many things in this world I am not interested in hearing about but I secretly stop and thank God for the blessings that are all around. My great grand baby Jayden above! I am not sure he is smiling! He is a very strong willed boy! I love that face! Please visit Jenny and the gang at Alphabe Thursday and share your favorite "S" things with us.
A smiling mom and her first born girl on Mother's Day 1978! We seem to smile a lot!
I love this black and white photo of Roger and Noelle! They have picture perfect smiles!
A smiling phamily. Graduation Mother's Day 2012 at Metro State College! Way to go Jeremy!
A pink smile for a pretty Proverbs verse and it is perfect for Pink Saturday! Beverly is our gracious hostess with the mostest pinks! Please visit her and many more pinkies this weekend! Stop by Spiritual Sunday and join Charlotte and the folks who share many encouraging words and photos with us. I think this pink quote from the Book of Proverbs honors women, no matter what our lifestyle is or the career choices we made.

Pink puckered lips! An ah ha pink moment!
Aw.....Marydon! I missed our Love is...last week!  I need to paint the bricks in this little Love is house pink!
A final pink share! Is this pooch cute in the hoosetooth pink and white cap and matching scarf?

The greatest pleasure in life, is doing the things people say we cannot do.

Prayers for Nick who runs in Stillwater, Oklahoma tomorrow. I want him to remain healthy and run strong. I think this quote sums it all up. Nick has come a long way in a short time. He has kept his grades up and runs strong and with this journey opened new doors for his future.

Hello Anne, I am sitting here in Beverly's craft room and loving my chance to visit my dear friend. I am definitely smiling and reading your sweet happy post just adds to my smiles.

Good luck to Nick with blessings and prayers.

We are heading home tomorrow and I will mail your gift ASAP. We have been gone 9 days so far. I am ready to get home to so many things I must do.

Love is... you.

I have a strong-willed grandson also. Aren't they fun! So glad to have him in my life, yet not be the parent who has to train him up in the way he should go. :)
I like the dog in pink accessories.
You've made me smile.

Sending Nick a little prayer!

And you a giant one, too.

I can tell how much you're missing him.

Keep smiling, though, girl!

You raised him right!

He is super!

And so are you!

Hugs and A+++
