Good morning! Here it is, Friday once more. I swear, some weeks seem like they’ll never end while others seem to fly by in a blur. I’m not sure how you’d classify this one. Maybe stop motion animation during filming?
So here it is, Friday’s Top Ten list of things that put a smile on my face when my body is doing everything it can to steal it away!
Top Ten Things That Keep Me Smiling:
1) I found this young man through a forward from a friend. He is one of the most positive, upbeat people I’ve come across and he does his part to make the world a better place by sharing that attitude with others. His page, “People With Disabilities Rock” is a treasure trove of things to make you think and smile.
2) A wonderful woman named Meleah, that I’m lucky enough to call friend, posted “Goodbye, Summer-2012” on her blog “Momma Mia, Mea Culpa,” which included a video montage. I guarantee, you CANNOT watch this without smiling. The adorable little guy dancing (her nephew) is the cutest darned thing EVER!
3) WEGO Health is sponsoring “Health Activist Inspiration Month” all month long. Their Facebook page features tons of daily links to amazing blogs and their Health Blog is featuring guest posts by activists about what keeps them inspired. (Shameless plug, I wrote on of the guest posts!)
They’re also helping spread the love for “Invisible Illness Awareness Week” going on now through September 16th.
4, 5 & 6) (This on is gonna count for three since it features three awesome writers!) Boobs. (There, I said it!) Breastacles are ALWAYS good for a laugh and this week I was NOT disappointed! Bev at “Black Ink Paperie,” Terri at “Workin’ With What I’ve Got,” and June at “The Neurosis Files” all featured HIL-A-RI-OUS posts featuring these amazing gadgets.
Bev’s “Keeping You Abreast” where she appears to be sharing her “endowments” past her daughter’s comfort level, Terri’s “Buoyancy” about an after dark swim, and June’s two part post “Swim, Charlie! Swim!” and “Charlie: The Conclusion” will have you rooting for a turtle left in the care of a clueless woman possessing huge gazongas.
Her name is Nocturna. She’s wearing itchy, wool gloves which she uses to make your friggin’ legs or the middle of your back (ya know, right where you can’t reach it) itch to the point that you cannot fall asleep! Her adorable boots echo up and down the hall, “Ga-lop! Ga-lop!” waking you up EVERY TIME you start to drift off. Her cute little wand? Yeah, well…instead of sprinkling magical sand to send you off to dreamland, they sprinkle the gritty, eye-gunky kind that makes it impossible to keep your eyes CLOSED!
Yes, this cutie-pa-tootie just wants to play and thinks you need to stay up ALL NIGHT to play with her!
Every morning I’ve been posting the song I was listened to while I wrote that day’s post and yesterday an awesome friend posted her own link! (Yes, I’m hoping the sharing of tuneage catches on. I LOVE finding new artists hubby can fuss at me for downloading. *grin*)
10) A few posts back in “Mom-Hands” I mentioned that my “new life” had allowed me to find my Clan, the Clan of the Crazy Laughing People. There have been so many times this past week when I’ve seen or read something that made my brain yell, “Another of my Peoples!” So, in honor of meeting so many of y’all, I created a sort-of Badge. (I say sort-of because I don’t do html, which seems to be what denotes the difference between a badge and a small picture. *grin*)
So, this is for all of you everywhere who are Crazy Laughing People! If you like it, feel free to stick it where ever you like, or just point and laugh. It put a huge smile on my face to make it! (And smiles? Are always good!)
