Even when you are sick (with a cold) and tired (from not sleeping from the cold) and restless (from seemingly endless winter weather) and worried (from Lucy's continued growth issues)...you can still wear a smile. Yesterday Lucy got a hold of some "happy face sticks" (stickers), as she affectionately calls them. Before I knew it she had strategically placed them all over herself: her hands, her feet, her pockets, her pants, her shirt, even her cheek! Throughout the day they naturally kept falling off, only to be found in random places... a sweet and gentle reminder from Lucy that whatever is going on, keep smiling.
By the end of the day, one lone purple sticker remained on her hand, saying to both of us....smile, for this too shall pass.
