Back in my college days, one of my friends tried to make me out to be the “bitch” of the group. So maybe the filter on my mouth isn’t there sometimes, maybe I like to be sarcastic and joke around. I rarely ever did anything that would actually hurt someone’s feelings though. My mom taught me right, if you don’t have anything nice to say then you shouldn’t say anything at all.
Any who I had recently broken up with someone, and I might have been a little pessimistic about boys and love, noting major. She would go around telling people I didn’t have a soul. Then one night we were at one of our friends apartments and we decided to watch The Notebook. She said that if I cried during The Notebook, it was proof that I did in fact have a soul. Well, of course I cried…I am not a cold hearted bitch! Gosh! Not saying that you are one if you don’t get teary eyed watching a movie about a fake life. I cry at those darn commercials with the hurt abandoned dogs too.
My point of all this is…there are little things in life that always make my heart smile. Sweet old couples is one of them. I saw the sweetest couple at Target a few weeks ago. They were both in wheel chairs, and they raced each other out of the store and down the side walk, then joined back together and wheeled themselves along side each other the whole way down the side walk. It just made my heart smile.
There is nothing like seeing a dog in the car with the window opened and its ears flapping in the wind. The look of freedom and pride on his face. How excited he is to be getting a ride in a car. He makes it look like this is the best that life is going to get. So excited. So happy. This…this makes my heart smile.
Every time I hear one of my nieces or nephews laughing hysterically…my heart smiles. There is nothing like a little kids laugh to warm your heart.
