no smile for me...



This is my little hero who is the smiliest person in the family. But this is him on a very rare day, when it's not a smiley moment.

Found this cute story of a someone who'd definitely smile to flashes!

SMILE! You're On Candid Camera!


A little girl walked to and from school daily. Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming, she made her daily trek to the elementary school.

As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning. The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be frightened as she walked home from school and she herself feared that the electrical storm might harm her child. Following the roar of thunder, lightning, like a flaming sword, would cut through the sky.

Full of concern, the mother quickly got into her car and drove along the route to her child's school. As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up and SMILE.

Another and another were to follow quickly and with each the little girl would look at the streak of light and SMILE. When the mother's car drew up beside the child she lowered the window and called to her, "What are you doing? Why do you keep stopping?"

The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty. God keeps taking my picture.


And, of course, amongst my favourite song, SMILE by Robert Downey Jr:

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile even though its breaking
When there are clouds in the sky,
You'll get by
If you smile,
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile, and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
For you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear
May be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile.

****
To those a little bit down or disheartened, lighten up a little. Smile.

mama sarah,
i'm going thru your site now. found a pict of my 2 kids there!! ahaks.. we decided to work on the house last weekend but i did cook for you! (kids even asked, who's coming? when? and in the end, why aren't they coming?)we waited and waited for you on saturday. didn't find us??

Mama Sarah said...

Oh dear! Sorry we didn't make it :(

Initially we planned to go to Essex, but we sent our car for MOT. But that is not an excuse because we could have walked to your place right?


Honestly, I didn't even try to find out where you are staying. But vaguely remember you told me, you're moving to Ch.Av. Kan?

Need any help for your new house? (haha ada hati nak menolong ni :)
