Project Smile: September

Project Smile
I'm joining up with the lovely Alicia for Project Smile.  The objective is to focus on the sweet moments that bring a smile ... nothing life-altering, but just the little things that make us smile.

Here's my list:
  1. My husband had an opportunity to bless someone in a special way.  The way it worked out, it had to be a God thing.
  2. My son and husband went to a football game, and I had some much-needed "alone time."
  3. The next day, my husband and son couldn't contain their excitement about the game.  As they shared their stories and pictures, I felt as though I'd been there!
  4. I finally made my husband a cake that didn't look like a disaster!
  5. Spending the morning with my church family was a bright spot in a dim day.
  6. My husband and I had a looonnngg talk and came to an agreement about something important.
  7. Rough day, but I had a good conversation with a wise and supportive friend.
  8. I had time to rest and read during the afternoon.
  9. Saw the doctor and got no surprises!
  10. Another rough day, but I made it through with the help of family and friends.
  11. We went to the races and had a pretty good day!
  12. Picnic with our church family
  13. My son made breakfast for us!
  14. I tried a new recipe that we all liked.
  15. Started a new Bible study with a great group of women
  16. We had an especially yummy dinner.
  17. Rough day, but I had great support from DH and two other friends
  18. DH brought me my very favorite chocolate-dipped almond horseshoe cookies
  19. A terrific worship service followed by fellowship
  20. I opened a fresh bag of Community Coffee "Between Roast" and it's SO good!
  21. Enjoyed a visit with a friend
  22. A chance to bless and encourage a friend
  23. Same as 17
  24. A joke from a friend made me laugh in spite of the bad day I was having.
  25. Date with my hubby, and some promising news from the doctor
  26. Worship, fellowship, and a quiet afternoon at home
  27. I received the Kindle that I won from FSB Associates (yay!) during Book Blogger Appreciation Week.
  28. I was able to cross several nagging items off my to-do list.
  29. Hectic day, but it was all good!
  30. I can't see the future, so I'll say that this will be a good day because it's Project Smile Day!

  2. Day 4 made me laugh. :) Congratulations on winning the Kindle!

  3. This is going to be such a great thing once it gets going. Just think of how much better our lives will be when we all try to find a reason to smile and then share it.

    You won a Kindle?!? NO WAY! That's AWESOME!!!

  4. Those are all great smiles! Congrats on winning a Kindle, lucky!! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I saw she was going to post this, I love all your answers. me time is always nice :)

  6. Thanks for sharing your smiles with us. Love that you could find a smiley moment even on those rough days. That's the beauty of it. And I love that you recorded daily (mommy of a monster did it this way too). I've loved hearing the smiles and seeing the creativity.

  7. I love that you chronicled an entire month's worth of smiles. I think I'm going to do that for now on, as a way to remind myself daily of the mainly little blessings that I tend to forget.
    Thanks so much for stopping by the other day. Project Smile sure is a lot of fun, isn't it?

    Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud
