Something to Smile About


Thank You Tony πŸ™‚ for this 100% smile-worthy list! There’s just one more thing I’d like to add…

At the beginning of July, I wrote a blog post plea for HPP. And for the past couple of weeks, we’ve been smiling inside and out because the doctors finally called with hubby’s approval to begin Asfotase Alfa HPP treatment πŸ˜€ That’s the news we’ve been waiting, hoping and praying to hear for SO very long. There were times when we thought this news might never come… But now, praise God, it’s here! The car is packed and we’re driving to Winnipeg to begin the healing process!!!!!!!!!

At the time of my HPP post, only Japan had approved the Asfotase Alfa treatment. Canada and Europe have now approved it, as well! My sincere thanks to everyone who shared and/or signed the online petition from my HPP post. Special thanks to Laura @ In My Words, for reblogging that post!

So that’s all for now…
Looking forward to connecting via hotel WiFi for the next week…
Thanks again and ttys πŸ˜€ β™₯ Jackie

Give Me a Reason to Smile

Β  Β Kittens

Β  Puppies

Β  The smell of fresh baby powder

Β  The smile of a newborn baby

Β Mom seeing her daughter for the first time in her wedding dress

A dad seeing his son graduate from high school

A red rose in full bloom

Lush fresh-cut green grass

Dark chocolate


Pure love

A baby’s first steps

Bright orange sunrises and purple sunsets

Rainbows after a rain

Letter from a friend

Breakfast in bed

A cat playing with a shoestring

Playing my favorite songs on the radio and singing along in the car

Eating a full plate of spaghetti with my favorite homemade sauce

Cherry cheese cake

Popcorn and a movie at home

Talking to old friends on the phone about our days of childhood

Going barefoot in the summertime

Jumping in the pool on the first day of summer and making a big splash with a cannonball
