Every time someone says Plato (today’s quote), I think Play Dough. And speaking of Play Dough, if you want a laugh, this mildly naughty, What Were They Thinking video does it for me every time!
Today’s Smiley is also on the back cover of A SMILEY BOOK OF COLORS. I found 5 other Smileys on that same playground. If you’ve ever thought Smileys were elusive, head to a playground. It’s only fitting that such a happy place is home to so many Smiley Faces and smiling faces.
Happy birthday Kelly Osbourne (1984), Ruby Dee (1922), and John Cleese (1939). I would totally LOVE to dine with this group!
Over on a month full of Smiley Silliness it’s both Forgiveness Day and Make a Difference Day. By forgiving others, you make a difference in their lives, but also in your own. Forgiveness doesn’t mean erasing what happened. It simply means erasing the hold it has on your soul. I struggle with this one, even though I know it’s true. It’s part of the work I know I need to do. I’m working on the work that needs to be done!
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. Today the monthly calendar alerts us to tonight’s full moon.
Plus, as is often the case, the Playground Smiley you get in the Smiley-a-Day emailer is different from what you see here.
