The Weekly Smile 05/27/2019 #weeklysmile – breathing treatment helping


The Weekly Smile 05/27/2019 #weeklysmile – breathing treatment helping

Breathing treatment is helping slowly bring my breathing under control and for that, I smile.

Sometime this week I am supposed to be getting a new kitchen floor. They moved up the date. It might be tomorrow. Yeah! Another smile.

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.”

Negatives

By Tessa Smeigh

Linda was pouring over the stuff that wasn’t damaged in the explosion last week. “Help me find those negatives, Ron.”

“What are you looking for, Linda?”

“Lucy’s baby picture negatives. I don’t care about the rest of this stuff. We can replace it, but the baby pictures we cant.”

**********276 characters************

Rules from Kat:

Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

Finally, have fun!

And REMEMBER…you have 280 characters (spaces and punctuation included), to tell your tale…and a week to do it. I can’t wait to see what you create this week.

Painting My Newborn

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Teach me,” Bob pleaded with the artist.

“I am busy right now. You have to sign up for a class.”

“Oh please, I want to paint my newborn before he gets any older.”

Creative Writing

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

I can write well. That is my one call to fame. My creative writing courses in school were always A’s. Found some old poetry from 8th grade and was amazed that it was better than some of the stuff I put out for these prompts. Some prompts I can sink my teeth into and some I just can’t get it and put something down, but it is not good. I am going through my 2 blogs and getting rid of prompt writing that is really not so good. They seemed ok when I wrote them and then I went back and decided they were not so good and not worthy of being on my blog. I belong to 2 writer’s groups and they have authors in them and they say my writing style is really good. Always great to hear.

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse.

Today’s prompt: garden, secretarywarship

**************************

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

The garden secretary sat on the side of the waterway and did her notetaking while watching the warship move up towards her and to its birth. She preferred sitting in the sun on the waterway instead of being closed in a building full of people making noise.

CBD for Fibromyalgia: Is it Effective, Safe, or Legal? — CBD is from cannabis, but without the high


CBD for Fibromyalgia: Is it Effective, Safe, or Legal?

CBD is from cannabis, but without the high

******************************

I have tried this in many forms and it is expensive and does nothing at all. My doctor offers medical marijuana, well that is even more expensive. You have the original license to buy and then the product itself is expensive and not readily available. You have to travel to get it unless you happen to be near where it is dispensed. You have to renew your license frequently. I couldn’t qualify the cost and since the CBD didn’t help I don’t hold out much hope for help from the medical marijuana. It may help some and if you can afford it and find a doctor who will prescribe it then, of course, try it if you wish to. I bought the CBD products my doctor sold swearing they were better than the ones I ordered online. It did nothing either.
