“Like a welcome summer rain, humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you. ” –Langston Hughes

While waiting for my husband, who was getting food from a food truck at the biking event we attended this weekend, I started smiling. It was a beautiful day, there were so many people out and I was tickled by the cute little bikers, costumes and custom bikes on display. My joy exuded and suddenly people started smiling back. EVERY person who made eye contact with me mirrored my smile. It was incredible!

This summer remember to laugh and have fun. Spend extra time playing with and looking at your children and family. Say hello to a total stranger; make a new friend. Tell a joke. There is joy waiting behind a smile.
