Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Smiley Balloons

--by brighteyes, posted Aug 2, 2008

While I was out shopping for some cool birthday candles for a friend I came across some SMILEY BALLOONS! 

Big, bright, yellow smiley faces that I can blow up into gigantic balloons and share with others.  I am making my plans, pulling out smile quotes, deciding who will be my kindness recipients.

I am also going to go to the Hobby store and buy some small rocks and add a smile face (an idea from this site!).  It seems with the cold, gray skies, a new year beginning, etc that many people are in a slump, have the blues or are depressed. My plan is to bring cheer, smiles, upliftment, and surprise with gifted smiley baloons, smile quotes and more!

Can you believe I found the smiley balloons in the cooking section at Safeway?  SMILING, ALL THE MORE!

That's a great way to cheer up the kids at my school. Sometimes you see them come in and know the day didn't start right.... I'm thinking it would be a very simple and perfect way to smile their day.
:^) sending you smiles for this one...

My most dreaded isle, I hate to cook, but I might decided to take a stroll down that isle, just because you recomended it. Who knows. I might just like it.
