When someone asks
if you’d like cake or pie,
why not say you want
cake and pie?
Woo Hoo, tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day! I am thankful for so many things. Thankful that even though life can be hard, I have so many blessings! In times of sorrow, I try to remember the good outweighs the bad, the happy outweighs the sad and the reasons to smile outweigh the reasons to cry.
On this day of Gratitude, I hope you’ll check out my new book about establishing a gratitude practice with your children. It’s Called: ‘Twas the Night Before . . .
It’s also Get Your Shopping Done Day. And I hope you have a lot of fun doing it. I actually look forward to the crowded grocery store during the days before the holiday. So many people, all with the same goal, all gathering for a like purpose. I know many are grumpy shoppers, but I also know that many people are as joyous as I am. There is something so wonderful about all of us coming together in preparation for our family gatherings. There’s an anticipation in the air just full of happiness and electricity.
Since it’s Cake Decorating Day, I share my favorite Cake Smiley with birthday peeps Tina Turner (1939) and Charles Schultz (1922). One known for the line “What’s love got to do with it?” and the other for “Happiness is a warm blanket.” I bet you can figure which said which. On a side note, getting the picture of this cake almost got the Smiley Lady arrested.
Once again it’s Tie One On Day. Since we just celebrated this 2 days ago, don’t go overboard. You don’t want a hangover tomorrow!
BTW, the Smileys and holidays on a month full of Smiley Silliness are all different than the ones you see here on the website’s Daily Smiley.
Plus, as is often the case, the Cake Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from those you see here.
