JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 7 – KINDNESS  DAY 197 :: puppies

8 Aug


I thought it would be kind to share cute puppy photos today. Why? Because these make me smile. And laugh out loud. Some are moments of pure chaos. Others are moments of pure bliss. Some are just a strange, crazy moment that we share with a Vizsla pup named Brady.



Did you smile?

More tomorrow….

Day 221: three things i love more than chocolate (today!) :: smiles, decaf, breakfast burritos

9 Aug

Get on the gratitude bus!  
What are the top three things you LOVE more than chocolate today?

Here are mine…

This morning I met up with my good friend, Sue, for a cup of coffee (decaf of course!) and a little breakfast burrito on my way back to the island.

I loved catching up with Sue and seeing her virtual office at The Daily Brew.

As I sunk my teeth into the softest, most yummy breakfast burrito, I felt something pop in my mouth. And, then, I felt something hard on my tongue, as I looked up at Sue with horror on my face, I realized…


Not just any tooth — my FRONT tooth.  The same front tooth that cracked last year. Same tooth. In the same place, on the softest food I could possible eat.

Here I go again, with the same summer dilemma as last year.

Walking around with a cracked front tooth feels like baring all my flaws to humanity.  Like waiving a big, red flag — look here!  I’m cracked.

I suppose the lesson I need to learn is to continue to smile, cracks and all. 

I know I will continue to smile — it’s in my nature. Even though I can’t help but feel self-conscious about the big gap, smack dab in the middle of my mouth.

Ironically, I have few things left from my mother.  One precious item is a letter from my dear Mama Sling that says so much with very few words.

“Keep your gorgeous smile, it’ll go forever.  Love, Mom.”

I am so very grateful for that note. Even when I have a gap in my tooth, it makes me smile just thinking about her.

And, that love, will absolutely go forever.
