Smiley Thumb Award!!!

I was nominated for a brand new award the other day! The Smiley Thumb award was created by David from the Chape blog, and I was given the nomination by T. Wayne over at the blog, A Joyful Process.

As with any award, there are rules (always rules!). The rules for this one are as follows:

 Include the photo of the Smiley Thumb award.
 Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
 Tell us what makes you smile.
 Nominate as many bloggers as you like.
 Include these rules in your post.

Okay, that seems simple enough…

What makes me smile? Here are the top three things that I could think of:

Music makes me smile, for one thing! It evokes many different emotions at any given time, so even if a piece causes me to weep, I still do so with a smile…it feels good to feel, you know?

Nature makes me smile – I love waking up and opening the blinds to see what will greet me outdoors. Clouds or sun, birds or deer, I look forward to what the day will bring.

People make me smile, whether in amusement, exasperation, annoyance, or resignation. Frail and flawed, yet beautiful and strong, my fellow humanoids make me smile – and, I make myself smile for all of the same reasons!

Thanks again, T. Wayne, for thinking of me for this award! It’s greatly appreciated…cheers!

    Thanks for the nomination. I think it’s really cool. I haven’t decided to accept or not as I don’t really read other blogs and I wouldn’t know who to nominate. It seems like a fun thing and I might share it on social media that I was nominated. What happens if you win?
    Thanks again for the nomination. I’m really flattered and humbled you thought of me.

      LOL – no need to accept…your ‘toons help me laugh at all of the political nonsense that we have to deal with – and we have 6 more months to go, so I’m looking forward to much more of your artwork!

      It’s the only way to stay relatively sane in the midst of this apocalyptic circus, eh?
