I have lots to smile about!

Yesterday, I had to run a quick errand for my dad before they come into town to visit us for Thanksgiving. While I was completing the purchase, I was asked to provide my drivers license for name check with the card I was using. The cashier said, "good for you" after looking at my photo. He then clarified, "good for you for smiling." Then he went into a few minutes of the importance of smiling, how it takes less muscles to smile rather than frown, followed by in a line up of people study, people were more attracted to those who gave even a slight smile versus showing no facial emotion. Then I said something to him that honestly even caught myself off guard. I said, "I have lots to smile about." 

Why did it catch myself off guard? Usually because when I am about and out publicly, I am so focused on what I am doing, completing the task that typically, my head is down and I am on a mission to get my check list done. 

It is 100% that I have lots to smile about. Three of them live with me every day, those are three reasons right there. Plus what they add to my life is already unmeasured reasons. I have a God who loves me unconditionally, despite all the screw-ups and times I have failed, which is every single day. This is just the starting point, I can go on and on but the point is - there is lots to smile about so share with me today. What do you have to smile about?
