Everyday Is A Reason To Smile
Yes, life can be stressful. It can wear us out. There are days that we drag ourselves out of bed, still sore and tired from the demands of work and household responsibilities. On the other hand, life also bring us reasons to smile and be happy about. More than happy enough for us to get up excitedly all ready to face any challenges of the day.
Browsing through my sister’s Facebook page, I came across a trip she made with her friends to help a few families in a fishing village in Capiz as part of their community outreach program. After the event, they got a special treat of ”Buko” or Coconut juice freshly picked from the tree and a mouth-watering, charcoal grilled newly catched seafood. Yep, a reason to smile and be delighted about.
Using her BlackBerry camera phone, she and her friends were able to capture the fun spirit of being among friends, family and a community that appreciate people for their kindness and good heart.
The man in yellow shirt helped them open the Coconut. My sister did gave it try but decided to give the job to the expert. Wise decision. The knife looks sharp and potentially dangerous.
Not to be out done, this gentleman brought them newly picked bananas.
Eating time. Hot newly cooked fish with rice do taste better when eaten using bare hands instead of spoon and fork. One of my sisters, finished an entire fish. Thus the triumphant giggle!
Everyday, we celebrate occasions that are important to us. A birthday, a wedding anniversary, even death anniversaries of the people who touched our lives and wish to remember for as long as we can. This year, my sister’s son turned two. The happiness on his face as he blew his birthday candles were priceless. I remember the pure joy and excitement I used to feel as a child when I had my birthday. My mom would bake me a chocolate cake sprinkled with colorful marshmallows and M and M’s. It was simple yet it had a undescribable magic that I feel is missing when I entered adulthood. Childhood is indeed an enchanting period. Today, I see the same spark in my son’s eyes when we celebrate his birthday.
Everyday, life goes on. Some days are fun while others routinely normal. Some days we are at the top of the world while at other times, we are sad and in tears. No matter what the day brings, we should passionately embrace it. Smile cause you’re happy, love cause you care, laugh cause you feel light inside, cry if you must to cleanse your heart of pain, live to the fullest cause we only have one life to live.
