Encouraging Words

Just a Smile


“It was only a sunny smile,
and little it cost in the giving,
but like morning light
it scattered the night
and made the day
worth living.”

-F. Scott Fitzgerald

  5. Your – graciously – liking a post which . . . I wasn’t sure lived up to the radical life of love I long to know in my experience. I wasn’t sure it did – until I perused your blog and realized that you would never endorse anything which wasn’t at least making a good faith effort to love. Thank you, really.

  6. A cup of coffee and my gratitude routine, as I use to wake up sad often but not in a few months and that make me super happy!

  7. Nothing brings a bigger smile to my face than the goofiness of my children. They can get me laughing… man, can they get me laughing.
