Thinking Of You ... And You

Thinking of some people makes me break into a smile at once.

Some are just lovely caring people, others are funny , others are caring and funny .

But they are all good to be around.

I think it is maybe the best we can do in this life .. . be a person whose name makes people smile.

This is great,love your post,very inspiring.

My mother passed away about 5 years ago. A lot of ppl I know when they lose a loved one and they think of them they are sad, but whenever I think of my mother, I smile. Good or bad, something she did that was wonderful, or any of the many things she did that made me shake my head and roll my eyes I smile. Once the funeral was over, I've never had sad moment. Sometimes she can still make me laugh out loud. But its usually just a wicked smile!

That is soooooooooooo true. There are people (and animals) passed I think about that always make me smile and laugh.
I watched an episode of The Twilight Zone last night where people didn't die anymore ..even when horrible ill .. it was a total nightmare :(
Loved ones do die but it's such a bonus to have smiley happy memories to replay :)

What a great thought to have as each day begins! "be a person whose name makes people smile" Thanks!!!

Thinking of you and Datura, that always makes me smile.
Reading you both in the same thread is usually a very amusing experience.

LOL .. yes, she is quite a card .. :)

Nice thought

Hi Pedro , Good to see you :)

nice! :)

Hi papri, :)

yes that's right

Nice post Tas. Associating a persons name with a positive vibe is certainly pretty cool.

Thank you TWU.
I am the epitome of cool .. always :)

I am thinking of you with a smile, Tas... :-). All good things to you...

Hi Kathie, thanks for dropping by :) xx

The power of a friendly smile almost unmeasurable.

Great rule!

This is so true, Tassie.

I have a number of these people in my life, and you are so right: it's a great pleasure to simply think about them from time to time.

I started off thinking of someone whose name makes me grimace and then thought how sad that is .. surely we would all want to be thought of with a smile.

...just as we would prefer to think of all others with our own smile. (I try to remember that we all arrived here without an operating manual.)
