A smile for me… A poem and a smile

Sometimes the greatest smile

We can share

Is the one we share

When no one else is there


I wanted to express a thought or two and maybe share a smile with you. I had the gift of corresponding with a friend about writing a blog post. My friend was considering not posting on their blog anymore, feeling perhaps that their words were not appreciated nor would they be missed. Funny as the blog was started to allow for the expression of thought and the feeling of getting it out into the world and come out of their box. Although anonymous the feeling of freedom and the empowerment of expression was a gift. I was thrilled that they chose to keep posting and the explanation of doing so to remain accountable to who they were and who they had become. Accountable to their self!  Awesome!!!!

I have that responsibility as do we all to hold ourselves accountable to who we are and choose to be. At times I forget to give myself that love I need to share with me. Many of us are guilty of this I think. I am working on that and have made leaps and bounds in the last few years.

 One of the things I love most in life are smiles. I have for most of my life shared a beautiful smile although not cosmetically beautiful my smiles are genuine and not superficial. Thanks to some wonderful people and an awesome dentist as well as years of work and some rather harsh reality( a steel plate braking some teeth in a work accident, biting the tops off of bottles a stupid act of macho ism, and neglect as well as being born with less than straight teeth) I now have a cosmetically appealing smile!

Today I smiled just for me!

Thank you all for allowing me to share a thought or two, I am grateful and appreciate your time and presence. I would like to say thank you as well for being the positive change our world and all we share it with need. Thank you all for being you and I do hope that when you get the chance to share a smile with you, you will you deserve it you are awesome!
