What brings a smile to your face?

Monday, August 08, 2011

It's National Smile Week! What brings a smile to your face?

For me it's my son, children's laughter and a purring cat :) How about you?

    Lots of things give me a smile, seeing little kids, seeing someone being successful and so much more.

    Talking with family or friends, reading someone's blog of jokes or random sayings. Purring cats and kittens playing. Life. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Of course! A purring cat! Also, expressions on my cat's face, a hot cup of coffee, an email from a friend, a phone call from a loved one, and a letter from a grandchild.

    Being a LEO, I'm sure she is a wonderful friend. LEO loves being the center of attention, but "The Queen" knows how to give love to her audience.

God Bless the USA!

God Bless The USA
by Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone,
I'd worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
with just my children and my wife.

I'd thank my lucky stars,
to be livin here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
and they can't take that away.

And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

From the lakes of Minnesota,
to the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston,
and New York to L.A.
Well there's pride in every American heart,
and its time we stand and say.

That I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

And I'm proud to be and American,
where at least I know I'm free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand up,
next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

Father's Day

Sunday, June 19, 2011

A Dad is a person who is loving and kind,
And often he knows what you have on your mind.
He's someone who listens, suggests, and defends.
A dad can be one of your very best friends!
He's proud of your triumphs,
but when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient and helpful and strong
In all that you do, a dad's love plays a part.
There's always a place for him deep in your heart.
And each year that passes, you're even more glad,
More grateful and proud just to call him your dad!
Thank you, Dad...
for listening and caring, for giving and sharing,
but, especially, for just being you!
Happy Father's Day.
