Smiles During Covid - Seeds of Happiness

Smiles During Covid

Smiles During Covid

July 11, 2020

I bought some Seeds of Happiness a year or so ago to share with my (then) staff nurses. Timing/situation was never right so I did not ever give them away.

I am now working in a nursing home that is dealing daily with the concerns and struggles related to Covid-19. The box of "seeds" spoke to me all weekend. I brought them to work with me yesterday and shared with my current co-workers.

I will admit I felt a little "cheesy", but continued to pass out my "smiles". The staff enjoyed them so much, they started coming to me. "Hey, can I get one of your smiles?" Finally, at the end of the day, I took my last one and gave it away. The response was, "Oh yay. I was hoping I would get one."

I just want you to know that you touched a lot of people by a simple piece of "throw away clay". I am probably the MOST blessed! God bless you in your journey! (We will definitely order more!)

I just wanted to take a moment to tell you about the orange smile 🧡 that I received 11 years ago. My incredible son passed away 3.3.2013 at 24 years old. He was such a delight and loved by so many. He was born 12 weeks early and struggled in the hospital for his first 3 years.
