Be happy!

This week has had it’s fair share of really really fun high’s, and really really annoying low’s. Instead of focusing on the annoying low’s, I want to share a few random acts of awesomeness that has turned my frown upside down.

Sitting next to a super sweet couple last night during Ash Wednesday mass. I don’t know why, but their cute smiles and hi’s to me just gave me warm fuzzies.

Laughing, laughing and laughing some more with Mary all morning, noon and night long about absolutely nothing. It’s the world’s perfect distraction to pressing adult issues and the simply best medication.

After said mass, going to pick up some a 6 pack of beer (for Hunter) and a bottle of wine (for me) (it was that kind of a day) and the guy who was checking me out said “Welp. You’ve got some good beer. Some good wine. And your ashes. You are SET.” For some reason, hearing that made me force myself to forget the annoying chain of events that happened 4 hours earlier, and focus on the good I surrounded myself with last night.

Bumping into Jaime in the hallway at like 4:30p yesterday and before she even said something, she gave me the biggest hug, which honestly was exactly what I needed at that exact moment in time.

My coworker Mike giving me his can of Cherry Coke today b/c he gave it up for Lent, but his wife packed him one anyway.

Stopping for coffee on my drive home from Hunter’s this morning and having THE most friendly, awesome and funny barista. When he handed me my coffee there was the most darling smiley face drawn on top of it and he says to me “Today….you get a smile! Be happy!” It makes me want to be more silly and kind to complete strangers, because you never know just how much they need a smiley face drawn on their cup of coffee.

Anything fun and silly that’s made you smile extra hard lately?! I’d love to hear about them!
