Whatever makes me smile is inspiration…

“If you’re reading this…
Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.” 

― Chad Sugg

Everything inspires me … not just a specific thing but that I am seeing this world through my very own eyes, I can dream, I can see my kids even in video messaging, I can hug my hubby, the bird in the birdbath, the pens that I use for sketching…. All these are inspirations and they all make me smile…

A flower that is not quite in full bloom…

Some ordinary looking birds all looking at the same direction, except for one…

My husband and daughter goofing around with the sound of their laughter…

    Hi, Teresa. Your image of your husband and daughter made me smile. I love those candid moments of fun. They are inspiring. I’m glad you joined us this week!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks Patti, happy that you liked that photo. It doesn’t seem like it but for me, I can still hear the laughter on the background. It was a fun day. Have a great week, my dear.

  2. Marsha says:

    Fun, Teresa. I love that blue and pink flower. It’s heavenly!

    1. Teresa says:

      I liked the way that it seems awkwardly beautiful. Like there’s something missing.Thanks Marsha.

      1. Marsha says:

        It’s not all bloomed out. Maybe that’s it. 🙂

  3. Beautiful flower! Do you know the name? I love it.

    1. Teresa says:

      Glad that you liked it. It is called Echium candicans (the pride of Madeira).

      1. Very nice how it opens slowly flower by flower.

        1. Teresa says:

          Yes, maybe it is nice to see it in Time lapse video.

          1. Cool idea!

  4. Ah, the power of smiles! And I love that quote you added at the top! Nice post!

    1. Teresa says:

      Thanks so much and that quote is so true for me. And I guess it is for you too because you noticed it. 😂

  5. Life only comes around once, so do whatever makes you happy, and be with whoever makes you smile. Teresa I always enjoy reading your post.
