The other day I went on a grand day out with my dear mother. About a hop, skip, and a jump from where we live is one of the loveliest places around. It is a road. It is a lovely road, very wide and very, very straight. On either side for most of it there is a wide strip of grass and then trees. There are never very many cars on it and that is perhaps why I like it so much.

Early that morning, we had gotten a great deal of rain. It was all over by the time we went out, but the most magnificent clouds were left. And this road is about the most glorious place for seeing clouds, it is so very open.

We were driving along and I was adoring the lovely sights. I realized that I had the mist giant grin on my fave. Then it dawned on me: I had absolutely no clue why I was smiling. The more I realized I didn't know why, the more I smiled. At one point I almost laughed. Maybe it was just so lovely seeing the clouds.

Sometimes, just smile. You don't need a reason, you know why? If you smile, almost a soon at is is on your face, you will think of a reason for smiling. If not, you will feel kind of silly in a very happy way. You will still be smiling.

Yours truly,
