"Smile"





      I again had a privilege to join one of those non-governmental organizations' medical-surgical missions and had a blast sharing happiness. One thing that I am so thankful for these days is good health and what better way to thank the Lord for all the blessings in life than taking time to stop thinking of one's own comfort and going the extra mile to listen to the least of our brethren's woes and extending a helping hand? I salute the organizers of the event and pray that their tribe multiply.




   



      I came home with a happy heart and memories of "smiles" from morning to afternoon of people old and young alike enjoying the simple pleasures of life from generous benefactors.


     Their lives once again made me realize how lucky we all are to be


  • simply alive
  • to be experiencing no pain
  • to have people who love us 
  • to be breathing with ease
  • to be having money inside our pockets
  • to have eyes that can see clearly
  • to be able to walk and talk ....innumerable...the things I am grateful for... 



..."Life is beautiful," that I am most certain of....and with "peace" in every home and love in every community...a child's dream of a better world will turn into reality....


from my humble world to yours- Kulasa

  1. A smile can lift instantly lift the spirits of a troubled person. It is something that is so easy to do yet we still find difficult to give to others.

In everything give thanks for this is the will of the Lord concerning you, this is one of my favorite Bible verses and yes indeed, we should be thankful for everything, even the pain, the sufferings, the trials and tribulations, we ought to thank the Lord for that too... Smiling is contagious! Those pictures of Lolas made me smile... and miss home!

  4. Those smiles from elderly ones are just contagious. They are just ordinary individuals who have unknowingly inspired and encouraged others to live life to the fullest. Pwede rin akong model ng 'Smile' ask mo si KM. LOL
