Trent, over on Trent’s World, hosts a weekly blog post that collects smiles from bloggers all over the world. This week his featured smile is the bees that survived the Notre Dame fire.
And he wonders what all of us have found to smile about lately.
I did plenty of smiling this week, given the first part of the week I spent in Florida, walking beaches and exploring parks, and especially hanging with good people and wonderful dogs.
And of course I flew home on Wednesday to my husband and my Katie-girl. Lots to smile about there too.
Then last night I attended a community orchestra concert in a small town about an hour from here.
On the early evening drive over to the venue the sky was filled with big beautiful blue bottomed clouds. I wished I had my camera and time to find a place to stop.
I had neither.
The concert was fun, and it was good to see an almost full house to support a community orchestra. There were some really talented people playing, and you could tell they were having a great time.
After it was over I emerged from the high school to see the clouds were thinning, but still in evidence. And they were turning purple and pink.
With only my phone to capture the beauty and in a community I didn’t know I set out trying to find an open field with a place to pull over before all the light was gone.
I got a few good shots, and that, in combination with the evening’s music, made me smile.
What made you smile this week?
