Wednesday Smiles
DB/ED being goofy
I mostly post fannish things in this journal, but I think it's easy to forget that there is a real person behind the fic and the squeeing over Bones.  Same goes for other people, of course.   So I'd like to take a minute to acknowledge our humanity.

Please tell me something that made you smile this week, no matter how small.  Could be the snuggle your dog gave you on Monday, the song you discovered on Tuesday, or the way your significant other smiled at you today.  I'm going to try to post this every Wednesday for myself, and if you feel up to it, please respond—here, in your own journal, or elsewhere.   Feel free to post more than one thing and/or respond to other comments.

Why am I doing this?  Because I think it is far too easy to get caught up in the stresses, big and small, that we all experience.   Being able to focus on one positive thing, however small, can give one a valuable sense of perspective.

Why Wednesday?  I figure a little mid-week cheer can't hurt.  :)

If you feel weird about doing this in public, please comment anonymously.  I'm setting this entry to screen anon comments; I won't unscreen any anon comments unless you give me permission.  And please feel free to comment even if we're not "friends." 

I'll be back with my response.

I don't always get a chance to respond to all your smiles, but I read every single one.  They all leave me feeling a little bit lighter than I did before.  So thank you!  I hope you're all having a good week, my friends, and if you're not, I hope it improves.

I have holidays the next four days. Yiahhh!!! It makes me so happy!!!
I'm going to the mountains and I'm going to rest and sleep and sleep and sleep. Ok, perhaps I will read some book too :)


Your icon is too funny. *g* Enjoy your time in the mountains! Rest comes first, and reading comes after that. *hugs*

As of 6:30pm I'll be starting a 5 day weekend! A mini vacation! After having to work a double earlier this week I am so looking forward to this!

Tonight I'm meeting a friend for a concert. Then we're doing a late dinner.

And, in case I forgot - - 5 days off!

Music, a friend, food, and then a vacation; woot! Enjoy. :D

I have one more day of teaching before a week of spring break and I finally feel like myself again after being something else entirely since the new year began.

Enjoy your break, and I'm glad you feel like yourself again. I imagine it was rather disconcerting feeling like someone else...

I'm going camping with my family this weekend! smores and everything :D

My friends. Every day seems brighter because of them. Especially Becca. Lately I've been dreading school, but she makes things better. And I spent this weekend in San Fransisco, which is like my 3rd favorite place ever.


California's fun--and beautiful. Everyone I know who's moved out there has never moved back. *g*


Indeed. :)

My Wednesday smile is that it rained all day. Why is this good? Because it's melting all the @#$ snow... Woo hoo!

It rained here all day, too, but we didn't have any snow to melt, thankfully. *shudders*

BTW, who is that in your icon?

This is pretty much a daily thing that makes me smile, my morning snuggle with my puppy! I actually set the alarm fifteen minutes early because he likes to cuddle in the morning... soooo cute!

My mom is in the hospital on a ventilator, and today when they tried to take her off of it, she breathed on her own for a whole hour! It may not seem like much, but it is huge for her. She should be off of it completely in a few days. I can't tell you how happy I am that my mom will be able to tell me happy birthday in a couple weeks!

I know I've said this before, but your Bones fics make me smile.

Today was a difficult day, but thinking about my daughter, and her novio made me smile.

My husband's thoughtfulness, in letting me sleep late, "just because I didn't have to work today", made me smile.

And you, Sweetie? Your kindness makes me smile. ::hugs::
