I Smile Because...


Today I'm Grateful:
For a new day
Food to cook
Cooking skills
A loving family
God's Love & Mercy


I Smile Because...

I'm happy
Joyful to be in this moment
Grateful for the sense to slow down and see
See the true beauty which surrounds me

I Smile Because...

I'm loved
by God, my child and even by those who have not met me yet

I Smile Because...

The sound of a child's laughter is contagious
To watch them play in pure innocence stretches my lips
from west to east

I Smile Because...

Even through the rain I can feel peace
I know without a doubt that I am safe

I Smile Because...

Of writers and bloggers, poets and musicians
Their words and sounds engulf my heart
They send me soaring beyond my imagination

I Smile Because...

I'm free...Free to say what's in my heart
Free to love and be loved unconditionally
Free to walk this path of spirituality on my
own terms

I Smile Because...

I'm surrounded by Angels
Those who have gone before me
My heart smiles widely knowing they are around

I Smile Because...

It releases me
Lifts me
Cradles me gently

I Smile Because...

I Can

  1. Hi Tabby,
    I smile because I've read this poem this morning. And it's uplifted me, and made me stop and think about the smiles I have in my life - some of which I've been taking for granted. I smile because our paths have crossed, and I'm a better person because of that...

  5. Amen to every word of this wonderful entry. I like knowing that sometimes I can smile for no reason at all. Just because.

    Life is indeed a blessing. Thanks for reminding us of this yet again.

  7. Tabitha,
    I am so GLAD that you smile and have offered this bit of encouragement for the rest of us to do so as well. I think it was actress Rosalind Russell who said, "A smile is a women's best cosmetic."
    BTW, I've finally broken through the glitch that prevented me from posting on your site. It was my browser. Using a new one.... Hugs!
