Make Me Smile

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Make Me Smile.”
If you’re feeling blah, what is the one thing you do that you can count on to put a smile on your face?

If I’m feeling upset or lonely, there are two things that make me feel better.  One being my puppy, which is obvious.  She loves cuddles and when I was going through one of the worst nights of my life (to the point I was shaking uncontrollably all night) she cuddled right up next to me and didn’t leave my side, even though she gets really hot and usually sleeps away from me.

  
The second is a present I got for my last birthday from two of my closest friends.  It’s a build-a-bear named Plebalina.  She’s so soft and cuddly, but more than that, it was designed just for me.  They took time out of their day to think about what I’d like, and spent some serious cash on it.  Most of all, the three of us each have one each now.  I always feel close to them when I look at it, and it reminds me of all the good times we’ve had.  Even in my darkest hours, I know they’re always going to be there for me.  Plus, who wouldn’t smile looking at this plushie?

  1. I have a plushie that I’ve had since age 2. 😀 We all need someone or something to snuggle with. I hope that you get a genuine long hug soon to also help make things feel better. xo
