Reilly Smiles…

What are smiles? The corners of our lips turned up to show we are happy; hmm the simple version.  

Sometimes smiles come in many different ways.

Today’s smile was brought to me by Reilly.

He made me laugh, with his little Reilly smile.

I laughed on the outside but as I walked away to do something in the house the feeling stayed with me; a smile in my heart. It trigged other thoughts, thoughts that brought a greater feeling, and then a bigger warmer feeling in my heart began to spread.

Some people can’t smile; they are in a place where life doesn’t bring them smiles. They try to make the smile happen yet there it is the black cloud that turns each corner down. The once warm heart stays cold. Unhappiness becomes their daily feeling.

There are times when the smile takes effort and if you forget to make the attempt to put on a happy face some people feel compelled to tell you to “smile”. Sometimes the reminder may bring one out of deep thought and back to reality but other times telling someone to smile when one does not know why they are frowning is dangerous territory.

If what I have done may bring a smile to heart or some ones face so be it, I will not tell them to smile. Sometimes it’s the little things that will take that person to the place that will make them feel like smiling.

I leave that job up to the universe to bring smiles or Reilly.

  1. Who doesn’t love the doggie closeup shots? This is great. So much personality!

  2. Fun. That’s the one word I would use to describe this. As soon as the page loaded up I smiled. That’s a good sign of a good photo.

  3. Reilly always makes me smile, thank you for allowing me to see his smile on enet, I miss his warm embrace, he is truly a dog that welcomes you into his world.
