That Thing You Do: Ideas I Stole From People Like You: Day 5

(Yup, I have more!)

That Thing You Do #24

My friend, Lois, encourages wives to “Save the best smile of your day for your husband.”

In the same spirit, she says she asks herself, “What does my face look like to my children?”

I have found these simple truths to be life altering. When I smile genuinely at Ryan; when I let my eyes twinkle and my face light up as I speak with our daughters, my heart is relieved momentarily of its burdens and my family is mysteriously unified.

Connecting, appreciating, and loving with a sweet countenance.

“In the light of the king’s countenance is life; and his favour is as a cloud of the latter rain.” Proverbs 16:15
