Sunday Pause (Paws): Smile When You Think You Can’t

It’s Sunday! Time to kick back, relax, and smile.😁

I didn’t get a chance to write a post yesterday so I thought I might wind up skipping this Sunday. But when I woke up this morning I had a song in my head and it made me smile. I decided this song would be great to share.

The song is about smiling even though “stuff” is happening. There is some “stuff” that could bring me down a little bit this weekend…if I let them.

I came home with a really upset stomach Friday night and it continued through most of the weekend. There have been a lot of sick teachers and children at work so I was thinking maybe it has caught up to me. Or it could be the combination of appetizers I ate when we went out Friday after work.

I balanced my checkbook this weekend which I do not like doing because I hate worrying about money.

I saw a post this weekend on Facebook I couldn’t read. But the headlines gave me all I needed to know. A man kicked and strangled a German Shepherd puppy to death.

I woke up to snow, snow, snow, and it’s still snowing.

All of these things could bring me down or I can choose to smile and look at it in a different perspective…

My stomach is feeling better, not 100%, but better. My checkbook is balanced and I’m blessed to have what I have even though money is a concern. I don’t have to work today so I can enjoy the snow from inside and it is pretty to look at. Now the puppy that’s, of course, nothing to smile about. But I know I am fighting for animals to help puppies like him and I’ll admit…I imagine that guy getting a taste of his own medicine. I would never hurt anyone and I know violence isn’t the answer to anything. But I just get so angry at the thought of someone hurting an innocent animal and it helps to kind of “beat them up” in my mind.

So as the song says “life can pull you down”, but “there’s something deeper that the world can’t destroy”, and “the storm only lasts for a while”, so “smile when you think you can’t”. How about listening for yourself.

Happy Sunday! 😊😄😁
