It's the Little things

As in every family...there seems to be a member who is the smile~giver.
The one who...even when he doesn't mean to, or even realize that he does it,
brings a feeling of joy.

 Joy you didn't know was there because you  felt you were in a valley moment, and were oblivious to it.

It was in one of these moments when that little smile~giver pulled something out of his pocket.
He loudly proclaimed to the ones sitting in their own little worlds...

"Let Me WARM Your Spirit!"

And with that...gave this a loud and happy blow:



 He carried on as though nothing had happened....but little did he realize- 
warming my spirit was just what he had done. 

His childish and innocent proclamation was simply perfect.

~It's the little things.~

I read a book along time ago, The Balcony People.. written by Joyce Landau.. Not sure if I have her name spelled write. There are two kinds of people, "The Balcony People" and "The Basement People". You are on stage and the people in the balcony are cheering you on,,"You can do It" These are the people who laugh and smile and make life happier.. Then there are the basement people who try and drag you down and tell you "You can't do it" your stupid, you are dumb.. I prefer to be in the balcony and cheer people on with a positive attitude.
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)
