The Weekly Smile 05/20/2019 #weeklysmile – updated first 2 chapters so it is more generic, breathing a little better

Spent most of the last week in the hospital. Glad to be out. I am smiling about that. However, my feet and legs keep swelling up and I don’t know why. Causes problems with putting on shoes. My breathing is a little better so the nebulizer medications seem to be helping. Another smile.

Sometime this week I am supposed to be getting a new kitchen floor. Yeah! Another smile.

Rewrote the first 2 chapters of the book to make them generic as to which military branch I am talking about. Kind of ruined my title and the story somewhat. Still working on a title although it does have a working title for now unless something better comes along. I may have to take the title away from the military. It isn’t the whole part of the book. It is mainly the time of our marriage leading up to the divorce. Still have thinking to do.

Trent’s Rules

What made you smile?

****

Come on, I’m sure you smiled at least once last week.  Why don’t you share it?  I hope you can join in!

Here is list of “rules” and guiding ideas.  If you don’t have time to read it right now, just remember that this is an exercise to spread positivity.  Don’t smile about the misfortune of others.  Don’t smile in a way to excludes others.  Make sure a 12 year old can read it.

And remember, the Smile can be anything, large or small.  Nothing, nothing at all is too small for a Smile!  Sometimes taking time to notice those small, every day smiles is more important than those once in a lifetime huge ones 🙂

To join in, write a post to share your smile and then leave a comment on this post with a link to your smile.  Or, if you prefer, do a pingback to this post (pingback = have a link from your post to this one).   You can post any time until next Sunday evening (to be simple, I will say midnight GMT, which is 7 PM Sunday for me).   Next week I will compile all of the Smiles and do a separate post of them on Monday morning just before the smile.  (I will shoot for around 7 AM EST).

Try to use the hashtag #WeeklySmile when you use Twitter or other social media that uses hashtags. I searched Twitter and found that #weeklysmile had been used only a handful of times back in 2012 and 2013. It hasn’t been used since. So it’s ours! I also registered it on Twubs.

You can use the graphic at the top. It is the official graphic for the event.

Now go out there and find something to smile about! 🙂

“There are days I go in search of the kind, compassionate, loving and beautiful. Despite what we sometimes see on the news, FB and elsewhere, there is much more beauty in the world than ugliness, much more kindness than hate or cruelty. Perhaps we should all have a goal to make at least one person smile every day.”

    I’m sorry you were in the hospital. Glad you are out. The good thing about publishing online is the ability to go back and change things. I guess there are a lot of growing pains with this type of writing. Keep it going 🙂

      Thank you. I am out, but something is still wrong. Yes you are right about publishing online. If I had done that the traditional way and then realized the legal implications it would be a loss of money and not just time and effort.
