And So It Begins...

I've finally done it! After many months of contemplation, I've done it! Welcome to my blog! The majority of my life is spent at a job where privacy issues are a big deal because I work at a school, so I won't be blogging about life in general. Trust me, I could spend countless hours writing about my adorable little kids, but sorry folks. That's just not going to happen. And let's face it, my life really isn't that exciting. So what's my purpose and aim for this blog? I'm glad you asked.

Purpose (for blog, and in life)
*to spread happiness and good things that are happening all over the world, and in my life
*Get it. Miles of smiles? Genius, I know.

So today's entry will only have two stories. Here goes...

1. I'm going to share something that makes me smile. My amazing family. I have a huge family and the love we have for each other is limitless. On Independence day, I saw one my nieces, the (second to youngest) go up to "GG" (the oldest), climb her wheelchair, just to give her a hug. I wish I took a picture. I can go on and on about my family. They made me who I am today and if you ask me, they did, and are doing, a great job. I can't explain how many stories I've heard and things I've seen about each of my family members going out of their way to help someone. I love it. Here's an adorable picture of my immediate family way back when. Now THIS makes me happy.

2. Now for my own sighting of a selfless act. One of my best friends, Cally and I were grocery shopping in Publix. When we were going down an aisle, we saw an older woman in a motorized scooter who was shopping by herself. She was trying to lean down to pick something off the shelf and after passing her, Cally turned and asked if she needed help. The woman gladly welcomed her offer with a big smile on her face. She may have been dreading this shopping trip or she may have had a horrible day that she was beyond thankful for this little bit of help. On the other hand, maybe not. But Cally did something selfless (which isn't uncommon if you know her), and she put a smile on someone else's face. That's pretty awesome. Here's Cally. Smiling's her favorite.

Okay. This is where I take a bow and congratulate myself on actually starting this thing. Woo! More great stories to come!

  1. yay yay yay yay!!! I Love it. And to repeat above, I love you too! And I love Cally, and her selfless act. This definitely made me smile :)

  2. I'm all fairness, I told her to write about me...

  3. In MY case, I had this post planned for months. Thank you very much.
