My Family Found My Smile and Brought It Back!


 There are some days that my smile is gone,

It some how disappeared between the night and dawn!

Where did it go? Why did it up and leave?

I need it to come back and give this frown a reprieve!

This day started off on the slow down in the dumps,

Things weren’t going quite right but I have to get out of this slump!

I ask my loving Father for his help and guidance,

He answers me by sending little messages from a distance!

On a little screen from my home I see my family,

They may be miles away but today they are in front of me!

There’s a “Hi! How are you?” or  a “We miss and love you too!”

Just seeing these heart felt messages makes my smile break through!

I am so blessed to have a Father who knows how to put me on track!

Because my family found my smile and brought it back!
