I smiled and hugged her and we were off again with a lovely day.

This morning I awoke, walked past my smiling wife, made some irritating remark, walked into the bathroom and saw that sour look on my face and I thought of the lyrics of the wonderful song “Put On A Happy Face” with lyrics by Lee Adams and music by Charles Strouse.

Gray skies are gonna clear up,
Put on a happy face;
Brush off the clouds and cheer up,
Put on a happy face.

Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy,
It’s not your style;
You’ll look so good that you’ll be glad
Ya’ decided to smile!

Pick out a pleasant outlook,
Stick out that noble chin;
Wipe off that “full of doubt” look,
Slap on a happy grin!

And spread sunshine all over the place,
Just put on a happy face!
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face

I went to YouTube and pulled up the video of Dick VanDyke singing the song and in no time I was smiling. I went back and looked in the mirror and sure enough there was a smile. I cleaned the smile up a bit with the rest of my face, went back and found my sunny honey and said, “Let me try again.” I smiled and hugged her and we were off again with a lovely day.
