On Monday I took my mom to see my granddaughter Natalie in her school Spring Concert. We always look forward to any special event the kids have. We were there so early, we got to fill in the front row. I am next to my son in law and daughter , who is next to my mom and Grandma Bea and Grandpa Bill . The kids did a great job of singing and reciting poems – all about being positive and loving each other and yourself.After the concert we were invited to the classroom for some refreshment, there was coffee, juice , bagels and cupcakes. Natalie pointed out her teacher and showed us where she sat and who she sat next to. My daughter and I told Natalie and her classmates that they all really did a great job!
Later we picked up Liam from school and went for lunch at his favorite place - Red Robin!! He sat between me and Grandma Bea and insisted we try the ice cream!! Don’t think I’ve ever passed up ice cream.
This was my favorite poem of the day :
‘Smiles are Infectious’
Smiling is infectious, You catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too . I passed around the corner, And someone saw my grin. When he smiled I realized I’d passed it on to him . I thought about that smile then I realized its worth, A single smile, just like mine could travel round the earth. So, if you feel a smile begin , don’t leave it undetected Let’s start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected!
Smile…..pass it on.
