Today my brothers and I bought some sidewalk chalk from the Dollar Store on an impulse. As we pulled into the drive, I started thinking about what we could draw and how it had been way to long since I had decorated the sidewalk with chalk. Thinking about the upcoming Earth Day, I decided to draw a sun that had a caption under it. The caption read simply: Smile! I realized that as I was looking at it, I was actually smiling. Feeling the dusty chalk on my fingers reminded me of when I was just a carefree child that laughed at everything and smiled at everyone. I've decided to be that carefree person again, living life to the fullest and bringing joy to other lives. As the sun goes down, the bright yellow seems to glow, reminding me of the light that a simple smile can bring to a dark day, and I am anxious for tomorrow to come so that I might make a difference for someone else.
"Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves" James Matthew Barrie
