This has to be the best day ever in the whole year!
World Smile Day 2017! A day dedicated to smiling and being happy.
Sometimes there is so much sadness in the world, and so many horrible people out there. I just wish everyone could be kind to each other. Why do we have to be horrible, and cause so much pain.
So to celebrate World Smile Day, I wanted to focus on the good things in life, and to make other people smile today, I asked a collection of bloggers to share the things that make them smile. Lets focus on the things that are happy, kind, useful, grateful of and hopefully it will make everyone in the world smile too.
I want to share a photo that makes me smile, the day my puppy came home to live with us.
From this moment on the fun was to start, he is such a loveable dog, he makes me get out and about each day. Even when I am hurting and could easily curl up and not go out. He makes the whole family happy, and bring so much joy. The children love him, and my son who finds ‘typical’ sports hard, has found a love for dog agility with him. Thanks Gus

We’re so lucky to have her in our lives.
Naomi from Naomi’s World – The way my eldest daughter dotes on her baby sister always makes me smile.

Kelly from Reduced Grub – I took some comic relief goodies, some of my childrens Lego and lots of little McDonald toys ( as it was all easy to pack) and handed it all out to street kids in Mumbai. The look of sheer excitement and delight on their faces would warm anybody’s cockles. A very warm and smile inflicting though.
Kaiden from A Suffolk Dad – Like Father, like son!
Sinead from Sinead Latham – Anytime we get to go to the beach is just the best time. Think he is destined to be a beach bum
