The Smiley Lady Blog
People were forever asking me how I got to be so darned happy. So I started speaking
to school groups and blogging about choosing to view life more optimistically.
Smile. Be happy!
I sure hope you’ll click to SHARE!!
Scroll down. Keep on going. A little farther. The video is below this happy photo of me and an adorable baby! As you can see looking at her grinning face, not all clefts are visible. Children with cleft palates look completely normal yet struggle to speak, eat and thrive. Could you part with a couple bucks?
Hi, everybody. I have the happy honor of posting for Positively Positive. It’s a post about volunteering for Operation Smile. (BTW, I get on a plane tomorrow for a medical mission to the Philippines). If you’re not familiar with the website, I hope you’ll enjoy noodling around over there, that is after having read and […]

So it’s What You Think Upon Becomes Your Life Day. Hey, that’s what my talk about happiness was all about!

Oh and […]
