...do I deserve to feel this good...?


It doesn’t take much,

All you got to do is smile,

Lift your lips and such,

To get used to it only takes a little while…J

 

Maybe you are just grumpy,

Better than being dumpy,

Keep on your face that smile,

And the brightness will show there from a mile…J

 

Don’t worry, be happy,

Heard it said before,

So don’t be sappy,

In the end, like it is right here,

You’ll feel better than being crappie…J

You must be feeling kind of nostalgic today, Bro.
I remember that dear old Ma called you ‘Grumpy’
And dear old Brother Edvard called you ‘Dumpy’
And your favorite old Cuz Cur called you ‘Thumpy’
And your beloved brother Pee Wee called you ‘Lumpy!’

LOL laughing at Jerry! Yes wear a smile and a little extra,
less muscles it takes to smile and more to frown!

Good attitude :)

Love and Light
