A Smile on Her Face

Whenever I go for my long, brisk morning walk I see this sweet lady.

I always give her a wave along with a big smile.

In return I see her eyes sparkle as she waves and smiles at me.

I pass her several times and every time I get a big smile.

Now this lady speaks no English.

We communicate in our own language.   :)

I think we understand each other, as I feel it in my heart.

When I showed her my phone and asked her permission to capture this photo she nodded yes, and when I showed her the photo, again I saw her big smile and she gave me a hug.

It doesn’t matter what we look like, we are all special and unique.

I wish to think of her as my new friend on my walking path.

God does put people in our lives for a reason.

She warms my heart and I am sure I warm her heart as well.

Share a smile~


We don’t meet people by accident. They are meant to cross our path for a reason.

Get Some Today

Studies show that a 10 minute walk immediately BOOSTS brain chemistry to increase HAPPINESS. Get your feel GOOD endorphins today.


Another HOT scorching day in my world. Too HOT for this girl!

Thank goodness I got out the door earlier this morning.

I am thrilled to mention it is 7 weeks today since my vein stripping surgery in my right leg and I was able to do some running.

I was able to run.   😉   

I did more brisk walking and some jogging.

Today I managed, 9.12 km/ 5.7 miles.

All this exercise is the best thing for the circulation and healing process in my leg.

I am back at the gym as well.

It makes me happy.

The ‘feel good endorphins’ are sprinkled on this girl.

So, hopefully you can get outdoors and grab some ‘feel good endorphins’.

Have a really nice day.

We Just Might

“If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we just might set the world in the right direction.” ~Martin Kornfeld


It is feeling more and more like Spring has arrived in my world. The blossoms are out and the sun is shining real warm. I took this photo while on my walk this afternoon. I love the sounds and smells of Spring.

It would be beautiful to see more acts of kindness in our daily lives.

One kind word can change someone’s entire day.

Encourage someone.


Give someone a hug.


Say, “I love you” to someone you love.

Say, “please” and “thank-you”- and really mean it.

Kindness is contagious.

Have a really nice weekend and don’t forget to share some kindness.

Make it a Habit

Motivation gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

It never gets easier, you just get better.

I am an active baby boomer and only want to inspire others to be active as they get older.

If I am not at the gym, I am enjoying the outdoors. I love to do some brisk walking and a whole lot of running.

Exercise builds self-esteem.

If you are not into exercising, I strongly recommend that you give it a try.

Exercise lifts your mood. Grab some endorphins. 

It works wonders for me.

Exercise prevents muscle loss as we age.

Stay strong as you can!  

I may not be the strongest, but I am working my hardest!   😉
