smiling's my favorite!

We had a wonderful weekend.
A houseful of extra kids both Saturday and Sunday= a lot of noise, fun and happy times. Kids were well-behaved, schedule was laidback,
mood was high.
This was also the first time in a few weeks where I've actually felt more like myself.
Even keel.
Emotionally, spiritually, physically.
There's much joy in this.
And with much joy, there is much smiling.
So how could I not capture my happy girl in her happy attire.
Oh sweet Berlyn...

Today I am reminded of your life verse,

"Be JOYful always, PRAY continually,
give THANKS in all circumstances.
For this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
~I Thessalonians 5:16-18

Today I am thankful for many things...
Health. Family. Faith.
For a God who showed up.
And gave.
And gives...
Who's FOR us.
Loves us.
And smiles upon us.

Yes, today,
"smiling's definitely my favorite!"
