At times, it is difficult to smile.
To keep moving in gallant strides when simultaneously disappointment is wringing out every bit of optimism. To smile becomes a great challenge, a colossal mountain to climb. Yet, somehow we manage to, even though, the curve of that first returning smile somehow feels displaced and the mind is disengaged. But soon we begin to believe all will be okay simply because it must be okay. Otherwise, why get out of bed? Why take another step? Why believe in the miracle of each breath?
In spite of the highs and extreme lows we have experienced this week, we are smiling merely because we believe in the promise of sunshine in each tomorrow – and with it comes optimism.
No matter what happens, no matter how deep the emotional wound and no matter how long it takes to recover, remember to somehow smile again! Tomorrow is only hours away!
We hope you are having a great weekend!
Until we meet back here, again, remember to smile!
The chorus says it all:
(When I think how much better I’m gonna be when this is over)
I smile, even though I’m hurt see I smile, I know God is working so I smile,
Even though I’ve been here for a while I smile, smile..
it’s so hard to look up when you look down. I hate to see it when you give up now
You look so much better when you smile, so smile.
