    I too choose to Keep Smiling no matter what.

    I too choose to Keep Smiling I found this today and felt that maybe someone else needed to read it too. Would you agree, that smiling is a choice?? I have been through lots of things. Some small and some not so much. However, I too choose to Keep Smiling. It really is a choice. Goodness knows that times can be tough. And we have loads of choices. This is one that I will pick EVERY time. When I read this, you know what it was a light bulb. Because one day they all will get tired of trying to beat you down.

    Winter Reminds Us to be Calm I sit here in my kitchen and look at all the decorations. I was thinking of something that Joe said. After seeing all the orange decorations, for months. He was waiting for the rest of the Christmas. To me I like the calmness of the greens. Yes, the lights are bright. However they are not the same. Then I saw this… Winter Reminds Us to be Calm. Paraphrasing yes, but some quiet and calm is good for the soul and the mind. I think that is why I love walking in the winter. Yes, it is cold. But the quiet of the snow and…
