Reasons to Smile

While reading some of Abigail’s stories this morning I found a little notebook with some words in it. In the front cover Abigail wrote this quote which she adapted a bit.

“When life gives you a thousand reasons to cry, give life a million reasons to smile.” ~Author Unknown

My Abigail knew where it was at. Her life was not always easy or predictable and there were tears, but she always knew how to make those around her smile.

Blessed to be her Susan/Mom!

  1. Abigail is one of the sweetest and happiest young ladies I have ever had the privilege to know. And Savannah, thank you for sharing such a special story.


  2. Love this photo of the two of you at the Mother/Daughter tea. Two beautiful ladies who give so much to our world. Much love!


  3. Just from the few times I got to be around Abigail, I could tell she had a love for life and others. Still loving thru her writings and pictures!


  4. I remember when we were at Graces birthday party last year, we were making pillow cases and I had written that quote on mine and Abby asked if she could use it… She said she had finally found a quote that matches her life. 🙂 She was so good at making people smile…<3
    Love and prayers always


    1. I was just resting my head on that pillow case of hers. Love the friendship she has with you. Thank you for sharing!!
