When you’re sad or having a rough day, what do you do to bring a smile to your face?

  • Do you go for a walk?
  • Do you call your best gal pal?
  • Do you treat yourself to something special?

This week, let’s share the things that make us smile at Friendship Friday!

    Hello there, I do all of those three if I could. Sometimes though, just seeing my children makes me smile and put an ease to whatever it is I am feeling. They are what makes me smile most of the time. Happy Friday Ramona!

      I know what you mean about your children / loved ones making you smile.
      Sometimes all it takes to make me feel better is looking around and starting to count my blessings!

      Have a wonderful weekend Amanda!

      Dear Judy,

      I’m so sorry to hear that you are dealing with stressful medical tests.
      I hope all is well.
      It seems this week’s column is timely…
      I hope the suggestions everyone shares will help to brighten your spirits! 🙂

  4. Watching butterflies visiting the flowers in our front yard makes me smile! So does your blog! Thanks for hosting & God bless!

      Oh Laurie, thanks so much for the complement – YOU just put a HUGE smile on my face!
      So does the thought of the beautiful butterflies in your yard –
      And, you and your husband ballroom dancing!

      Have a wonderful weekend, my friend!

    Robert and I enjoy reading the funnies together. Mr Pickles is our favorite. Some we do not read, as they are not funny and we love to smile.

      How funny that you should mention the funnies.
      I almost asked, for today’s topic, who everyone’s favorite cartoon characters are!

      I love that you and Robert read them together.
      Such a sweet habit to share!

    I have lots of things that make me smile … calling my now-adult kids or my parents (or seeing them in person when I’m really lucky), visiting online friends, going on a walk, or going to Adam’s Mountain Cafe in Manitou Springs with my husband. Thanks for hosting each week! 🙂

      Thanks for sharing, Deb – these are all great ideas – especially having a favorite place to visit!
      I hope you have a weekend filled with things that make you smile!

    What makes me smile is getting a moment to paint my nails, go for a nice walk in the very early morning. Also, just being able to sit down and read a book makes me smile.

    Thank you for hosting Friendship Friday!

    You know my pets make me smile…they are so precious. Since my Girl is a Tween, she makes me smile just a little less then when she was younger! lol. My hubby also makes me smile but my default smiles are pet focused…;)

    When I am having a rough time, I eat chocolate. Massive quantities! Then I call my sister and we talk for hours. That’s my therapy and I’m sticking to it!

  13. All of the above are great ways to put a smile on my face. My husband and I love to spend time with our daughter doing a video chat. She lives on the west coast and we are on the east coast. Seeing her beautiful face puts a big smile on our face. I was able to see my family this past week in NY; it had been several years since I’d been back. That made my heart smile. We hadn’t all been together since my Mom passed in 08. Thanks for hosting this wonderful party. Kim

    What made me smile? That chocolate cake and ice cream that I just posted. I had a slice of that and everything was wonderful. Plus, we’re headed for vacation and can’t wait to get home for some of my mother’s cooking…..
