What does it take to make you smile?
I was in my car and on the way to the shops this morning when the cockles of my heart were thoroughly warmed! I drove past what looked like a father and daughter and they were obviously out walking their dog.
Just as I drove by, they had pulled up to the pavement opposite the road from me and were teaching the dog how to sit and stay rather than dashing across the pavement, and as I looked I could see that the dog was a puppy - it looked like a King Charles spaniel and it was just so gorgeous that I just melted into a puddle of goo!!
I think that I smiled for about the next five miles and giggling every time I thought of that puppy so eager to please and yet so excited too. Even now, practically the whole day later, it still makes me give a little smile!
