Saying Cheese

profile with wrap“I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. ‘Tis the business of little minds to shrink, but they whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves their conduct, will pursue their principles unto death.” ~ Leonardo da Vinci

Give us a Smile is the photo challenge on Weekly Prompts the site I share with my partner GC and here’s mine!

Our advice? Use the smile factor – Give one away and watch it spread around.

Louisa smileI asked their mum my lovely daughter Louisa to send me a smile- she sent this!

William and Scarlett

No smiles here from William and Scarlett, I wonder what that’s about

Many years ago, more than I care to remember, someone gave me this record, it remains not just good advice but something I strive to achieve. And besides, I just love to hear Nat King Cole!

    1. Thank you Arlene that’s kind of you. Once I got started I got a bit carried away, I couldn’t include one little one without another. I have six other grandchildren five boys and a girl but they chose not to be included!

    You sure started my day off with a smile….in fact, lots of smiles. What a beautiful family you have Sue. They all have wonderful smiles, but Lily-Jane and Scarlett take the cake. And your daughter’s watermelon smile is too funny.

    Love, love, love Nat King Cole! That man could’ve sung about kitchen trash bags and we’d have hung on to every word! Lol.

    I make it a point to smile at every person I make eye contact with. I know it brightens up my mood when someone smiles at me, so why not pay it forward. It’s easy, painless, costs nothing, and it’s just a nice thing to do.

    I envy you your big family…and all those grandkids! I have no doubt there are moments of chaos, but the love and affection you must feel certainly outweighs those moments.

    Have a terrific weekend!

    1. We are very much alike you and I. Smiling lifts our own faces as well as our moods. Thank you for your lovely comments Ginger always appreciated 😀


    1. Family days, those with all of us are always fun, and agree such lovely smiles from the children. Thank you for your comments much appreciated!


    1. Thank you Les. Like you my own children are female heavy, (one boy) the older grandchildren are boy heavy and then we come to the younger end and here we revert to female heavy !


    1. Four daughters Brian and one son. Still one better than Mrs Bennet!
      Sophie is now divorced so I’m on the lookout for a Mr Darcy, Trouble is she doesn’t want another husband! 😀
