Five Friday Happy Bringers (5/9/14)

It looks like a beautiful Mother’s Day Weekend Friday here in Savannah.  (Does that make any sense?)

1.  Sautéed collards and onions.

2.  Delicious views on my walks in Savannah.

3.  This so-true affirmation for today.  (I know, I know–some folks make fun of me for my love of affirmations.)

4.  The enticing perfume of jasmine.

5.  Mamas who are still walking.

My mom just turned 87.  And still getting around.  Here we are at Cracker Barrel on Monday.

Happiest of Mother’s Day weekends!

P.S.  Oh, I forgot to tell you–I got my first-ever Mother’s Day present this morning!  Really.  I’m telling the truth.  Since his parents are out of town today, I dropped grandson Gabriel off at The Little School, and the teachers had prepared cute Breakfast Bags for the moms.  Bagels (“choose your flavor!”), cream cheese and juice.  I lingered, elaborately saying a long and emotional goodbye to Gabriel (“Abu will miss you so much, but you will enjoy the healthy but delicious lunch I prepared for you.”)  At the same time, I tried to look hungry, pitiful and motherly.  I guess it worked:

Put on a Happy Face!

Face1

Sometimes you just gotta do it.

“What?” you ask.

Put on a Happy Face.

Yes?  No?

Don’t get me wrong.  Other times you need to wail and mourn.  (I’m REALLY good at wailing.  Ask anyone who knows me well.  Or not so well.  Okay, okay, ask anyone who was in the theatre with me when I first saw Marley and Me.)

Seriously, I do believe there is a POWER in smiling and putting on a happy face.

Apparently, so does Penny Marshall.  (PLEASE tell me that at least four or five of you know who I’m talking about.)  Here she is on The Captain and Tennille Show back in the late seventies when I was in graduate, I mean grade school.

Listen to her lesson:

*

May your face and body and heart and soul be happy this day.

If you can, try to put happiness on.

Lotsa Happy Faces: Here
