This morning on the way to work, I happened to be behind a car that had a sticker on the window that said, “I hope something good happens to you today.” It made me smile and brightened my day. I resolved that I would find a similar sticker so that I can, hopefully, similarly brighten the day of anyone who happens to be behind me. When I saw the one above on Amazon that included the adorable smiley face, I quickly added it to my cart.
With so much divisiveness in the world today, seeing a sign like this gives me hope. The sign didn’t mention that it only applied to those with similar world views or similar political leanings, just to anyone who happens to see it.
I have already had some good things happen today, but seeing the sticker reminded me to appreciate them. Today it will be 10 months since my first date with my sweetie, the sun is shining and it is a perfect 70 degree day with a respite from the severe storms we have had the last few days.
On Thursday it will be two years since my Mom passed and her headstone is finally in place at the cemetery and looking so good. Mom loved smiley faces and would have gotten quite a kick out of the smiles on the flowers. She would most definitely have wanted one of these stickers for her car as well!
To all those who are reading this right now, I hope something good happens to you today!
Love, ❤️ Beth
This is the first blog that came up in my “reader” tonight. What a positive piece to start the night! I’m sure that I would love to see that sticker if I was out driving. I’m glad that good things happened to you today. I love the smiling flowers on your mom’s headstone. I wish we could have done something like that, but my mom is buried in a military cemetery and all the headstones are universal.
Thank you so much for adding a bit more positivity to my day with your very nice comment! 😊 I placed my order this afternoon for the sticker, so hopefully soon I can make a few people smile on their commute or while running errands. 😁 Mom’s headstone took almost 2 years to finish, but they did a lovely job. It’s too bad military cemeteries are limited in what you can do. Maybe a sweet smiley in a bouquet could be a sweet remembrance, even though it is short lived. I think the most important thing is that we remember them and honor their memory. ❤️
I love that something so simple can go a long way in spreading smiles. Your mother’s memorial is beautiful and full of joy.
Thank you so much, JoAnna! 😊 I love the thought of spreading positivity so easily. It makes me smile to think how many days the person in front of me brightened without even lifting a finger. 😊
That is such a wonderful act of random kindness! Thank you for sharing!
Thank you, Dawn ❤ I thought it was awesome and wanted to be able to do the same!! Hope you have a wonderful day! 🙂
I love this! We need more positivity–kudos to you for bringing it.
Thanks so much, Janet! 🙂 The credit goes to the driver in front of me! Isn’t it wonderful how much one can do without even knowing it?!? 🙂 ❤ 🙂
Thank you. Same to you; more good things and every day.
Thank you so much! 🙂 ❤ 🙂
