Friday Five: Smiles

Jan from RevGalBlogPals offers this week’s Friday Five:

For this Friday Five, what makes you smile? Remembering that Meister Eckhart said that if you pray “thank you” that that is enough of a prayer, share with us five things, memories, or activities that bring you smiles and gratitude.

I’m going to do it with photos and a song.

1. A Place full of memories and laughter:

Sunset at the Beach

2. Friends for the road: I can laugh, cry, pray, struggle with them.

The Pastorettes - Dana, Elizabeth, Marina, (and missing Terry)

3. Our wonderful daughters, Reedy Girl and The Johnnie, and my Beloved Bearded Spouse.

I love my fambly...

4. The feline members of the family.

Polgara

King Henry the First

5. God’s “amen” – flowers. Blooming in the most unlikely places.

BONUS:
This song by John Rutter, with its amazing photography, brings a sense of peace every time, and a smile with deep roots of joy and contentment.

    1. I didn’t make the video – just linked to it as it’s one of my faves. It’s on YouTube. You just click the “share” tab under the video and then click “embed” – there’s the code to copy and paste into your blog. Nice trick. 🙂
