Outdoor Cams added to Spreadin’ Smiles Blog

Hi!  Hope you are having a good week.  I have had a few challenges with this site this week.  You know how it is when you want to have everything go in the right direction and then it happens.

Perfection is a good thing to go for.  However, as things happen and with  a test of patience I now can say I am introducing Warm Creek Smilin’ Place.  As I have dreams for this place I am starting out with  providing some ‘Cams’ for you to enjoy.  One part of our mission is to ignite smiles by bringing nature into our viewers lives.   So, please click on the navigation bar and visit the first cams at Warn Creek Smilin’ Place..  Remember, they are all bringing you a live look at the land and the animals.  Sometimes they escape our view however, they do come back.  Trust me on that.  The only one that is not live  are the bears of the North.

Also, added one more item to our shop.  It is a wall hanging with an attached box to hold your keys. hopefully, with a few smiley faces so when you leave your home or your office you can put some in your pocket.  Just maybe you would like to make someone smile and you will be prepared.  Love giving them out to children as well as adults. Fun celebrating those smiles smiles on their face that are igniting the world around them.

This week I visited the hospital to support a friend.  Filled my pocket with smiley stickers and cards.  Had so much fun giving out the stickers and thanking them for all they do in providing such care.  One nurse was surprised to receive one.  She was happy to get this little sticker.  Her response, “Wait til the rest of the nurses see this.  They will be jealous.”  So, I reached in my pocket and gave her a whole strip and said, “Have fun with these.”  I think it made her very happy to have some fun.

So, as I write to you this morning, I am indeed smilin’.  Of all the projects I have created and worked on , this campaign is the most fun.  Hope you will join me.  If you have not subscribed to our email messages please do.  Also, visit our store!

Hope you enjoy the cams.  I keep one of the cams on my computer.   The first one is a bird feeder.  During the day it is quite lively.

Last thought.   If you have questions or comments please go to our comment page.  Love to hear from you.

Oh…Happy to say this is a secure site.  Just happened.  So when you make a purchase in the store, your information is protected.

Have a great day and  ‘Celebrate your Smile. ‘  We are blessed with many things that are free.  One  thing that does ignite the world is our Smile.   As Mother Teresa said, “Peace begins with a Smile.”  So I say..”Let’s be a part of that campaign!

Until the next time.,  Have a Smilin’ Time wherever you go.

Holiday Greetings and Smiles to all!

Merry Christmas and  Happy Hanukkah, Dear Readers!  This is a season of celebration.  We wish everyone a wonderful and blessed holiday season.   Here in the mountains of Montana the snow brings to all of us a picture book feeling of what we view on Christmas cards.

May all of you treasure your moments with family and friends.  May you share many smiles on your journey throughout the holidays.  What a special time to celebrate all the treasures of friendships.

This Christmas I am so thrilled to share Spreadin’ Smiles Packet with friends that include many smileys to give out to others.  So much fun as my friends take a look at the packet and begin to open it to view the contents.  I am having so much fun watching the expressions on everyone’s faces as they wonder what this is all about.  What made me so happy is that they all seemed to enjoy looking through the little packet.

As this celebration is the beginning of the “Spreadin’ a Smile Campaign”  with the Mission to celebrate those who ignite our world around us with their smiles,  it makes me feel so humble to be able to highlight the gift of this idea.  The smiles that are around me in this world are unbelievable.  They have probably been there all the time however, never noticed as many as I do now.  The more I do this and hand out smileys the more I gain a connection with the people around me.  It is this connection that I am pushing.  I want everyone to feel the same moments.  There is a quote on the packet.  “Peace begins with a Smile,” by Mother Teresa.  Have you witnessed a crying child in Walmart or in a restaurant and wishing the little one would somehow stop crying.  Parents always are so frustrated.  So….wanted to test what a Smiley would do.   So every chance I get I give out a Smiley to these dear cryin’ little ones  Guess what happens…tears stop and after a look at the little smiley on their hand, each one looks up, stares at me, and all of a sudden sends me a smile through all their tears.  Some adults are shocked when this stranger comes up to them and  thanks them for their smile as I hand them a smiley and say  thank you for making this a bright moment.

Smilin’ is magic to all around.  I know I reap the benefits.  It opens a connection with others.  I have received jokes, new friendships with stories to name a few.  Someone even wanted to know who I was and wanted to write my name on the ballot for President of the United States.  Could not believe that one and neither could my friends who witnessed this.

The stories are endless.  I invite you to join me in this mission…  celebrating others who freely ignite the world around them with their  smiles.  I have just started a little shop with smile items including the little smile packet I have put together.  As this week moves on during the holidays. I will be posting caps, signs, and bags that have my hand prints on them as I create various fun items to promote smiles for this campaign.  If you have any ideas send them along via this site or on our Spreadin’ Smiles facebook page.  .  Love to hear from you.

Or ….send an email to resilienceliving@gmail.com.  I would be so grateful to receive your ideas as well as joining me in spreading the word celebrating smiles.   Have so many goals to meet to support the growth of this mission including giving forward to the setting up of a non-profit to promote our natural world that certainly brings out the smiles in everyone.   It will include  nature books for kids.   Literacy is so important.  This will be a fun way of supporting the celebration of smiles; moreover, making a difference in the youth of our children and preserving our land.

Do bookmark this site.  More to come as all parts to this new trail are falling in place.  It is like having many puzzle pieces that are slowly providing a picture that I know will be truly wonderful!  You are definitely a piece to the puzzle.

So…Happy Holidays!!!!!!!!  As we also like to give out Hugs and Smiles.  Know a Hug and a Smile are coming your way.

Recipe for Spreadin’ a Smile


DSC_0146
So thrilled to begin this “Spreadin A Smile Campaign.”  The has been a grass roots campaign and now feel it is about time to invite all of you to join us.

The time is so right.  People are going through so many challenges.  News is filled with so many upsetting moments.  However, there are moments where people are sharing their positive attitude with a smile.  Each and every day people are sharing a smile as they pass us on the sidewalk, passing us in the store or asking  us if we need help.  Teachers are spending time motivating our children, nurses and doctors are helping us feel better….  There are many who are inviting us to go outside and enjoy nature.

There are so many people all around us helping us feel good.  Do we recognize these people?  Not always… since we are always in a rush.   We send out nothing back to these people to say thank you.   Yet these people are trying to make us feel good.

Appreciating people around us who are Spreadin’ A Smile is the main motive for Visitthis blog.  This blog is also going to share fun stuff that show how people are appreciating other people’s smiles.  Fun ways people are Spreadin’ A Smile.
Sky is the limit.  This is a blog that is going to be open to guests as well.  Hoping you will want to join Our Smile Team.

We want to touch all ages.  Your comments are valuable to us.  So share what you do to share and spread a smile.

Visit our page “About Us” to learn more.

Have a great day and remember to notice others who are smiling back at you.  Remember, to send out your special to others.
