Monday Musings: Just One Smile

When I met this graceful Snowy Egret just around dawn yesterday, I felt my heart was smiling.  And I remembered a beautiful poem I had found some time ago. It spoke to me about reaching out, supporting one another, and brightening someone’s day. This is how it goes.

Let my soul smile through my heart

And my heart smile through my eyes,

That I may scatter rich smiles in sad hearts.

Paramahansa Yogananda

I thought about it and realized there are sad hearts, for various reasons, all around me. Both physically and virtually. Known and unknown to me. I was walking and contemplating this when I saw a beautiful cloud on the sunrise sky. Whether synchronicity or not, it delivered the message.

If I could help rekindle even one smile in a sad heart this week, I would be happy. Just one smile.

Have a wonderful week. May your heart smile.

  1. Glorious post, Tiny! I just could not keep away. LOL Yes I have been in my gardens, but I need some WP time! LOVE the cloud with the SMILE on it! How cool is that? And the quote …. I have many of Yogananda’s books so this quote is very special to me. Just beautiful, my friend. Just beautiful. Love, Amy

    1. Thank you dear Amy! WP time is good for you, in moderation 🙂 I wish you have a great day in your spring gardens today! Love, Tiny

      1. Ah, that is the “key”, Tiny. My prediament, when I do blog, I have so many notifications to respond to that I end up on the computer for hours. I’m really trying to incorporate a different pattern. I so enjoy the blogs I visit and the many I talk to. I have found in many ways it is good therapy, yet, yet too much of a good thing is not a good thing. (smile)
        Gardens …. I AM SO SORE! OH, Tiny! I’m slowly sipping my coffee this morning, assessing what does NOT hurt, and tuning in as to how much I do today. When I see the progress I’ve made, I get excited and motivated. So, perhaps 1 or 2 gardens today. I also have noticed more growth to take pics of so you know that is what I will be doing. As long as I am down on my knees, I may as well put to use my “eye”. LOL
        Have a wonderful day, my friend! Love, Amy

        1. I can “see” you there in your gardens…working…and taking gorgeous pictures of new growth! That is so encouraging to see 🙂 Love, Tiny

    Thank you for sharing you and your words that smile

  3. What a beautiful, beautiful post – my heart was smiling as I read it, moreso (if possible) on seeing the cloud – most definitely a sign! 🙂

    1. Thanks Joanne! It was delightful to see the “heart cloud”, one didn’t even need to use imagination…”the sign” was right there 🙂 Have a great day!
