Smiles (and Laughter)

I have been awarded the “You Make Me Smile” award.

I consider this a gift – one that means a great deal to me.

My sincere thanks and appreciation to Eileen.

Smiles and laughter are two of life’s greatest blessings. To be able to do either while life is also throwing you some wayward curves has been a saving grace for me.

My kids are able to elicit the biggest smiles and the wackiest laughter from me. Thank God for their craziness. (Wonder where they got it from?)

To think that I have been able to produce smiles (well, at least from Eileen…) gives me enormous pleasure.

I would pass this award along to Dan from Dan’s Blah Blah Blog but he’s taking a blogging break right now. (I miss him.)

I would also pass it along to Diesel from Mattress Police but he would sic Grundir the Implacable on me for doing so. Such a scary dude.

And I’m not sure if Dorky Dad has this one. (H
e’s got tons of others.)

If you don’t have this particular one Dorky Dad, consider yourself awarded! If you do have it, consider yourself twice blessed...

I am also passing it along to All Mod Cons.

The above-mentioned bloggers are able to make me smile and laugh no matter what kind of a day I’m having. That truly is a gift – on their part and for me.

Actually, I’d must say that just about every blog I read makes me smile.

And I thank you all for that.

(The above photo is my youngest as a baby – love those infectious smiles!)


Diesel said...

Thanks, Beth. Grundir might have something to say about this eventually. :)

Casdok said...

A lovely photo!
And congratulations on the award!

Beth said...

Congrats Beth!!!!

You always make me smile....and that picture is perfect!!

Beth said...

Hey, I played by the rules! If Grundir has anything to say, it better be nice and/or sweet...if he can.
No wrath!

Thanks - I was so touched to receive it.

So glad I make you smile - and that makes me smile!

Shari said...

Congrats on the award.

Sherry said...

You make me smile...and I can see why Eileen gave you this award. Congratulations!!

Yes, humour, children and smiles - like sunshine breaking through an otherwise cloudy humanity.

All Mod Cons said...

Thanks! Mainly for the kind words, really appreciated! I shall wear my award with pride!

And yours is completely deserved, you do indeed make me smile on a regular basis.

Beth said...

Cute little guy, huh? His smile makes me smile.

Yikes! No daughters - it's my youngest son! (Hard to tell with babies...)

Age wise, he'd be ready - he's 20. Baseball skills? Not so much...

Love that Woody Allan quotation! We use it to tease my middle son who is definitely not the "nature guy" the other two are.

all mod cons:
Well, then, it's tit for tat!
(And I'm not being rude - that's an expression...)

I love the picture Beth!! What a perfect smile and such a cutie. You really do deserve this award and I am glad it made you smile.

Shari said...

Ooops. (red face).

Beth said...

Thanks so much for giving it to me - such an honour.

No red face necessary!

Angela said...

Congratulations! And so deserved. Consider yourself gifted one by me, too. You rock, Beth. (I miss Dan, too. :( )

Beth said...

Right back at ya' - you make me smile, too.
And you make me think - in a good way.

Princess Pointful said...

The two best things a blog can do is make you smile and make you think. Both are Beth specialties!

Beth said...

princess pointful:
Your comment made me smile!

Dorky Dad said...

HOW DID I MISS THIS?? Ugh. I'm going to go to my bathroom so I can beat myself over the head with a plunger. (Not really ... plungers are gross ...)

Anyway, thanks a billion Beth!!!

Dorky Dad said...

Oh yeah, and you definitely make a heck of a lot of people out there smile! Congrats!

Beth said...

dorky dad:
Thank you and you're very welcome and
here's to smiles and laughter!

(Plungers - not so much...)
