Sandbox Writing Challenge 32 – When You’re Smiling The Whole World Smiles With You.

Impromptu Promptlings, hosting once again, The Sandbox Writing Challenge, at the capable hands of Lady Calen, wants to know what would cause us to put on a happy face; what would make me smile the way the woman in the photo feels. Go take a look the door is right there, two lines above.

A lot of things make me smile like that. It speaks of great happiness, with the aw factor. Music, without a doubt, has that affect on me. And pictures can do that, like when I was over at Mary, from Walking My Path blog, reading her Equinox post, and the little prairie dog made me go aw. Her entire post was so wonderfully whimsical.

Being out in Nature is chock full of moments that brings out oos’s and ahh’s. Seeing a flock of geese flying overhead, or a chipmonk sneaking up on our deck to check out something, and even if it is depicted in film rather than being able to experience the moment in person, watching an Orca breach the surface of the ocean, will get a smile from me.

Many movies, in fact, bring on a smile like that; the excitement felt when there is a part of a movie that comes up, which has connections to specific things in our lives. An example. There’s a movie called The Lake House, which has so many things in it, from one of our birthdays showing up somewhere in the story, and one character had Q’s name, to the fact that the moving company was one we used during the move of my ‘stuff’ down to Dallas, where we would be living. And the magic of the love that unfolds within the movie. It never seems to get old.

Reminiscing on our anniversary, about the things that happened on that first night together. Watching our wedding tape with all the moments, and then going to the actual place where it was held, and walking around, sparking some forgotten moments.

Watching Television with our amazing talking sock monkey, not only makes me smile, but has me in stitches.

And I do believe, when you smile, the whole world smiles with you. It’s as contagious as a yawn.

    I think you are so right about smiles being contagious. People just seem so much more responsive when you’re smiling at them. They can also HEAR a smile in your voice on the phone! Great post, Fim.

      Thank you, Mary! From the moment I first visited your beautiful blog, I felt so very much at home, and so very happy! Our common ground and love for brother and sister beings and Communing with the Green Ones, always makes me smile. Your way of describing (as I so often do in my mind) the conversations that take place between you and the beautiful beings gets me to giggling, and clapping. 🙂

    I just get so excited when I see scenes from television, movies, or commercials that are set at the South Street Seaport Museum in New York City. I spent many wonderful times there years ago and visuals glimpses always make me smile.

    Great post.

      Oh my, yes, JoHanna! It is such a wonderful place to visit! And I know what you mean. When I get to see somewhere I’ve spent a lot of time in an actual movie, so I know what is right around the next corner, it’s thrilling!

      Great quote from Andy Rooney!!!

      Wishing you a joyous weekend! XOX
