OMG! What a gorgeous, radiant smile!

May you too find yourself frequently overcome by a deeply substantial, captivatingly contagious, gratitude-drenched JOY!

And may this joy be for no specific reason rooted in avoiding pain or experiencing pleasure…

May this be a joy beyond preference, a joy ‘just because!’ and ‘why the heck not!’

So may it be 🙏
Timeless love 💚

Blessing backstory:⁠
A while ago I decided to find uplifting images, ones that made me smile and lifted my spirit. And to send them together with a blessing, a personal wish, to my immediate family. Over time it’s become a ‘daily-ish’ morning practice via WhatsApp to a slowly growing recipient list. Recently I’ve started to share these blessings and images on social media too, with a prayer that they brighten the world of those who receive them.
