A Year of Smiles – Day 245


Look at what I’m wearing! I can’t remember the last time I wore a dress. I’m a blue jeans and comfortable (but cute!) shirt kinda girl. I simply don’t do dresses. They require too much fuss.

Today, however, was a special occasion – my niece’s wedding. So I set aside my preferences and said “yes” to a dress! Ha! Really, it wasn’t a difficult choice to make. It’s what you do for family. It’s what you do when you care for someone.

I sat in my aqua sundress and listened as sacred vows were spoken. I was reminded of the covenant of marriage and of the importance of saying “I do” – not only on your wedding day but each and every day after. 

I fidgeted with my dress.

Yes, sometimes saying, “I do” means setting aside your own preferences. That’s what you do for someone you love.

It’s those things we do for love that bring SMILES to our hearts each and every day.
