A Year of Smiles – Day 224

Reason to SMILE #224: A CLEAN HOUSE 


It’s been a long time since I’ve had one of those. ūüėČ


A Year of Smiles – Day 156


There are two types of people in this world: those who drive into a parking lot and pull into the first available space they see and those who drive around the parking lot again and again until a front parking space becomes available.  I am the latter.  I firmly believe that in a list of things worth waiting on, a front parking space is definitely one of the top three.

No. 1: Waiting on God

No. 2: Waiting on your soul mate

No. 3: Waiting on a front parking place

Some may say that only someone who is lazy drives around and around the parking lot waiting on¬†a front space.¬† I say it takes¬†someone with a great amount of patience to wait while a shopper buckles¬†a baby in a car seat, loads up two other little children, unloads two shopping carts full of groceries, returns the carts to the corral and then spends at least five minutes fussing¬†with her children before actually¬†backing out of the parking space.¬† I don’t even honk the horn to hurry folks along! ūüėČ

Seriously, I do like to find front parking spaces and I consider it a blessing when I do.¬† In fact, I made a trip to the store over the weekend and I didn’t even have to drive around the lot at all.¬† I pulled right up to the first parking space and parked right beside myself.¬† Yes, you did read that correctly.¬† Check it out:


I was so joyous over such a good parking space, I was beside myself!  Hehe!

Oh, yes!  Even a front parking space can make me SMILE!
