You Make Me Smile
There is so much to make me smile. I love gardening. Creating new recipes. Finishing a really good book. Hanging out with friends. But I think seeing my kids happy, thrive, do fantastic things is what really makes me smile. It is hard being a single parent. Balancing everything. Making sure the bills are paid, schoolwork is done and they kids have their needs met. From music lessons to church, new clothing needs to the latest electronics. It isn’t easy. There are many times I have to say no. Sometimes due to late of money and other times because they just can’t have everything.
Sometimes smiling is a simple thing. Happiness is a state of mind. Days can have bad things happen but I really believe how we handle it or what we do with what happened is all depending on ourselves. Regardless of circumstances, I believe there is a good in everything. I wish my kids the world and hope they will enjoy it and embrace it as much as I have or more. Seize the day!
