Raindrops in Kansas
It is a rainy day here in Kansas.
The rain is good but it gets me down. The clouds are gray, the dog doesn’t stir, and I have no where to go.
My antidote to this malaise is to smile and think of Robyn’s Lake House. It is Traditions’ new site, a getaway, a mountain retreat beside the lake where the sun always shines and the birds sing. And in my memory I hear Julie Andrews thinking about favorite things, and somehow I insert a line about raindrops on branches, and smile.
You can visit if you want, but you have to smile. No stinking thinking at the lake, no crabby thoughts, you ought to relax and have fun.
“You are what you think,” my daughter said and smiled.
Such a simple thought
Smile and the whole world smiles, such a simple thought, an idea that is contagious. Something that always makes us feel better. It is just what the doctor ordered. Besides, they say, it takes less effort to smile than frown.
Oh, doesn’t a smile on your face make everything fall into place?
So smile and brighten someone’s day. (You don’t need to be Irish, but it helps.)
