Inspiration: Keep Smiling


If at times you feel you want to cry
And life seems such a trial

Above the clouds there's a bright blue sky
So make your tears a smile.

As you travel on life's way
With its many ups and downs

Remember its quite true to say
One smile is worth a dozen frowns.

Among the worlds expensive things
A smile is very cheap

And when you give a smile away,
You get one back to keep.

Happiness comes at times to all
But sadness comes unbidden

And sometimes a few tears must fall
Among the laughter hidden.

So when friends have sadness on their face
And troubles round them piled

The world will seem a better place
And all because you smiled.

Have a Beautiful and Blessed Week! :)


  1. FFM,
    You are such a brave women, I can see your kindness in your words. I am very sorry for what happened. It's very sad to see how things in the world are many bad people and bad things happening. Thank God that you and your children are SAFE, this is the most important! I agree you should press charges against him and I hope the police can catch him. Please try not to come back to this market with your children, and keep your eyes open who is driving behind you, remember,( my husband's advice) if you make four right turns and the car behind you does the same, it is because you have been followed.
    Happy late birthday!!!

  9. Hey there FFM - long time no chat!! I'm catching up on the blog - I can't believe that encounter - Thank god no harm was done to you or your kids. Happy belated as well! We need to catch up! -R

  10. that was lovely, thank you for sharing that. and I am sorry I missed your birthday. I am certain it was blessed!!! all my best.

  11. Ahh! I meant that I am so sorry that happened to you and I am so glad you and your children are ok. I typed that in a hurry and was careless.

  12. FFM,

    This is off topic but I noticed on a comment you left on polyvore that you are looking for a pair of metallic platforms. I love platforms and at 5 feet I need them. I've scoured the planet for metallic ones and have come up empty handed. Have you had any luck?

  13. Good Morning Everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous week! Thank you for all the comments and words of encouragement and support...they are greatly appreciated! :)

    Terri: I am still on my quest for the perfect Metallic Gold Wedge. I ordered a pair of Caio Bella Rielly sandals from Piperlime last week but haven't received them yet. I'm hoping they will work out and will be sure to post whether they do or not. They only have size 8.5 in the gold at Piperlime right now: Click Here . The site also had numerous pair of Gold wedges so I will look there if these don't work out.

  14. Sorry this is belated, but happy birthday!!! And thanks for the inspirational words!
