My Weekly Smile; March 18, 2020

Some early blooms which makes me smile!

Welcome to my weekly smile. I want to keep smiling even though I am finding it more and more difficult each day. We are facing something no one could imagine except for maybe all the scientists out there that have been predicting this very thing. I have listened to some very good podcasts which have featured some renowned scientists, but it still doesn’t ease ones worry. So I need to stay positive and see how each day unfolds. For now I want to smile. I think trying to smile about one thing a day helps keep our chins up, and hopefully makes it ease the worries. πŸ˜€

Mt Baldy snow covered peaks. The rain brought snow in our local mountains!

I went for my walk this morning and it was a chilly 46 degrees with wind bringing it down close to 40 so I did not walk as long as usual. But as I walked by this park close to my house the view was stunning! I do wish at these times I had a better camera, but I walked into the park to take this photo above. It was really gloomy out with the cold wind and clouds, but looking at the mountains you can see the sun hitting the mountain range off to the far left of the photo. In person it almost glowed since the sun shimmered off the snow caps of this range. It got me thinking as I walked this morning that I made the right decision to stay home. I was to travel today, it was just not going to happen. It is too crazy out there and I want my family to stay safe. Traveling today is not a good idea.

My little grandson! I miss seeing him but I know more importantly is to see that my family is safe! ❀
Missing her SO MUCH! Love this photo! Will see her hopefully next month! or?

The photos make me SMILE! I love my family so very much and it just didn’t make sense to visit during these trying times. I woke up Monday night and went to work and thought my throat felt scratchy. I feel fine now and maybe it was just stress, paranoia I know can make you think you are sick, and I was so worried I would drive to Phoenix and bring something with me to my family there. I would just die if I brought to them any kind of virus, corona or any other flu. I feel fine today. I am home resting and am taking these days off by taking care of things around the house I often neglect. I pray for everyone, and especially that all of my family near and far stay safe. AND if any one of them gets sick, I hope it will be mild.

My ponies today! They always make me smile! I need all the smiles I can get these days!!
What a handsome boy! He is standing perfectly for this photo!! He also looks pretty good for being 23 years old! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

I really wanted to share my smile for this week. I always get such warm and loud welcomes when I come to the barn as my horses recognize me walking in and whinny! I just love hearing them and they are always waiting at their gate waiting to come out for some fun. They really make me smile. What makes you smile? I am sure there must be something, at least one thing? I have filled my smile today with pretty blooms, beautiful mountains, my most precious grand-babies and my bestest friends, my horses! Stay safe out there!!

    1. Thank you sweet friend! We were able to chat today and is almost like being there, so am very THANKFUL for today’s technology. It was a great comfort to me to hear all is good, and definitely hearing their voices, very comforting!! ❀️ I forgot my daughter-in-law has asthma and with the newborn it solidified my decision as the best decision that I didn’t visit. 😍 You always make me SMILE! Thank you for positive support!! You made my day! πŸ’–
