Honoring the Caretaker!

Honoring the Caretaker Today!…Well… everyday!  However, today, here at the “soon to open” home of Experiosity Smilin’ Place we honor the Caretakers Today!

Caretakers…Come from all walks of life.   According to Wikepedia caretaker can be a movie, comic book, rock band …here is the link,  a football coach, a janitor.   The Caretaker we are honoring today gives their undivided attention to making us better.  Tirelessly, they are there for us throughout our communities and the world over.

Thank you for all that you do for all of us!  We salute you! 

Each Sunday Morning will salute a caregiver.  This Sunday I want to salute everyone who finds themselves as a caregiver.  Sometimes it is a surprise to us when we realize someone needs us.  It is unexpected.  A Big Thank you to you for stepping up!  This is what makes the world a better place every day!  The quiet active Caretakers!

 We salute you!  Please know that we are sending you a Smiley Card.  It says,” You Are Special.”  Thank you!

 

Best to all!  Have a Great Caring Day!

Until tomorrow, sending you a Hug!

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.

GIVE A SMILE …A Special Poem by Debra Kraner

“GIVE A SMILE”
By Debra Kraner
 
Just reach out, you’re almost there
It’s so important to show you care
No need to talk or even touch
A simple smile can mean so much
 
It can lift your spirits
If you’re feeling blue
When someone turns
And smiles at you
It has a magic
 
That’s special to see
Makes attitudes change
So easily
Test it yourself
 
On some passerby
Make someone’s day
Give a smile, don’t be shy
Your sweet little smile
 
Can go a long way
To heal what’s been hurting
Or brighten a day
The magic, my friend,
Only starts then and there
You see it’s contagious
It spreads everywhere.
 
You gave one
They caught it
and now they’re aware
of the power in a smile
and it’s their
Turn to share.
Thank you, Debra, for this special Poem.  Your special poem will be enjoyed by many as we realize your message within you poem “Share A Smile” can create magic.  Our smile can heal, become contagious and has the power to light up our lives.  You gift to Spreadin’ A Smile Campaign is so special.  Know that we are sending a smile back to you!
