so much to smile about

Reading and thinking about this post today - Smile in Each Moment by Zen Habits

"...remind yourself of what’s happening right now, and see the beauty in it, see the reason to smile. And then smile, externally and internally.
This changes your day, because now instead of being caught up in stress and stories, we are present, and happy. We can be content with every moment.
It changes your life, because too often we miss the smile-ability of life when we are not paying attention."

I have so much to smile about...Like this afternoon while doing that stack of dirty dishes - because that meant I had a husband to cook a meal for. And that really is a reason to smile. It was worth every single one of those dirty dishes.
That even though the weather has been stormy today, I have the ability to see it and experience it.

And I think when you can smile in those moments that seem so hard to, you affect those around you in a positive way. A smile goes such a long ways.

But my favorite reason to smile about right now is that I get so spend my life with someone that loves me. Someone I think the world of.  Someone who is my world.
