On Smiles

I cannot help but smile.

When I see you at the President's Spring Forum with a huge bouquet for your mother.

When I get to share lunch with you three.

When you are coming to visit so soon.

When I think about our porch.

When the prayer chapel is warm and quiet and still.

When Dewey and I take an extra long walk.

When I see you across the road and there is not one tinge of regret or pain.

When we share a hug on the way to Demaray.

When I know I am loved by the King.

But it's easy to smile in the sun.  You know who's truly making a difference: those dear ones who can be just as excited when the sky is grey and we all need an extra layer.

Stop waiting for the warm weather to be in love with everyone around you.

Stop waiting to change until it feels better.

Be made new.
