Make Me Smile

The song Make Me Smile by Chicago will always bring me back to the 70’s, football and fall. It was one of the songs we played in our high school band and for some reason it popped into my head during my walk this morning. The thought of the song actually made me smile. Which inspired me to focus on what other things in my walk that would make me smile.

Here in no particular order is what made me smile, a cat crossing the road, a neighborhood park with swings, a road sign that read slow children at play (you hardly see those signs anymore), the American Flag flying from a pole, front porches, the sound of rustling leaves, the changing leaves, the angle of the sunlight and how it intensifies all the colors of fall, the sound of wind chymes, the feel of the cool air, geese flying in formation and the feeling of gratitude and the sensation of lightness I was getting just by noticing and smiling…

That’s what made me smile, now what makes you Smile?
