my 3 yr old son at swimming lessons. (really, he is a champ swimmer, this is more for behavior reasons...will he listen to the teacher? Then I can put him into pre-school!)

Seeing that, sure gave me a warm feeling in my heart.
Aaaawww! Not only did that make me smile but made me all misty & stuff! Too too sweet!

I just saw this little video on BBC's website about a man who has been gardening for 93 years and it was so inspiring! That brought a smile to my face

I just got back from my Developmental Psych class. We were talking about how the ability to learn stays constant through most of adulthood and one of my peers shared a story about a community college near her house. She said that this 80-year-old couple goes there to take classes together and are always walking around with backpacks on and holding hands. The story received a collective "awww" from the class and thinking about it still makes me smile. :)

Had a long day on the road. Over 80 miles and came home tired. It was a good day, but a long one.

Buck made me a drink and I'm sitting in "my" recliner in our family room. I'm joined by Ashley (my avatar), Chessie Lou, C.J. (Chessie's brother and littermate), Miss Rodeo, and Tigger. They love sitting with mommy and they are a comfort to me after a day like today. Looking at them, all cuddled up together, with smiles on their faces, makes me smile. I am loved.

Not a week for smiling for me I'm afraid. I'm trying to think . . . I guess it was last week when I saw my 1 1/2 yr. old niece for the first time in 9 mos. This week is pretty much a downer. One of my best friends passed away, my MIL is in the hospital, my dog nearly died (caught a quick onset illness in the nick of time), etc., etc. We always have blessing to count, and I have many close friends . . . that makes me smile!
