This is a triple whammy post – a smile that knows no blogging boundaries, in fact this smile has been released into the atmosphere – it’s a soaring balloon of a smile!
I hope you like the quote that I wrote:
There’s nothing quite like a smile. It’ll brighten the day for you, and you and you. It’s infectious, a bug with no cure, so rush out and crack open a smile today. Don’t delay! Make it stay! Don’t delay! Make it Stay! Allow it to sashay, party and play…. Let it fly, float and frolic on your mischievous lips….
This Wednesday I’m doing this triple smiley post for Colleen’s Writer’s Quote Wednesday, Ronovan’s #BeWow, and Trent’s #TheWeeklySmile.
It’s true what they say about a smile, it is the universal language of happiness. So today, being that it is the end of the school term, and as of Wednesday afternoon I’m on holiday… Yippee…. I thought I’d test it out in the playground while I’m supervising the children and see what kind of response I get… Can you be firm but smiley? Is that possible? Would they pay attention if I tell them off/ask them to do something with a smile? This might be quite a challenge…
Well what happened?
I had a really bad sleep and I was feeling a bit grumpy and tired!! And not very smiley at all. Typical. The sun went behind a cloud and the day was cold, grey and overcast. But on the bright side it didn’t rain.
Luckily I managed a few smiles, no one was particularly naughty, at least I didn’t notice any behaviour that warranted telling off. But, I tend to be a pretty chilled out kind of lass and don’t get bothered by much. Though I did come across a few problems, there was a young girl on the verge of an asthma attack, another girl cut her knee, a boy complained someone hurt him, and there was the case of a book of puzzles left on the bench…… Who did it belong to? Why had it been left? A mystery in the making…….
Here are some wonderfully smiley quotes from The Fresh Quotes to get you in the smiley mood for half term….. or just to give you a bit of a lift mid week.
All people smile in the same language.
Use your smile to change the world don’t let the world change your smile.
You are never fully dressed without a smile.
A laugh is a smile that bursts.
The world always looks brighter from behind a smile.

And Dr Seuss, is a fund of great advice:
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
― Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss really does know a thing or two…
And I came across this wonderful quote – which really sums it up – we’re alive… isn’t that something?
“If you’re reading this…
Congratulations, you’re alive.
If that’s not something to smile about,
then I don’t know what is.”
― Chad Sugg, Monsters Under Your Head
Goodreads synopsis and Author Bio of Monsters Under Your Head:
Monsters Under Your Head is a poetry book about life in the words of someone who’s just as lost in it as you.
Chad Sugg’s first poetry book, Monsters Under Your Head, is often quoted to great lengths since its release thanks to the internet age. The book is one of two self-published poetry collections Chad has released over the past half-decade.
Chad was able to launch his poetry from the success of his musical career, where since 2004 he has been releasing original music under the moniker Backseat Goodbye, as well as most recently under his real name.

Marje, I loved your quote and your thoughts! You always cheer me up! We are in the midst of a blizzard right now. 😀 I didn’t know if you knew but we changed up the quote challenge: here is today’s post: http://silverthreading.com/2016/03/23/wqwwc-writers-quote-wednesday-writing-challenge-magic/.
