Her Sunshine Smile

Sources of Light

I am sure you know someone in your life who is a radiant source of light. They light up a room as they walk in. They exude joy, enthusiasm, sense of fun and care. They can be strong when called upon and can be nurturing when needed. They can help you grow and they can burn you if you stray. They draw people like the sun draws the planets to orbit around them. They become a centre of their own solar system!

I find something incredibly positive about such individuals. It is not like they have had a unhurdled life or that they were given things on a platter. Underneath their bright and boisterous exterior they may have black spots and bad memories, tough life events and difficult up bringing. Despite this , they choose to be bright and positive and exude goodness. I know this, as I try to be one too.

This song is for all those strong women who are constant sources of light.

Her Sunshine Smile


She rises in the morning every brand new day

Brightens up the sky, baby come what may

She always seems to know just what to say

Each and every way



Sending out her warmth to all who need

Making hope grow from a tiny seed

When it comes to fun she takes the lead

In each and every deed



Glad she’s been lighting up the sky

Never ever stopping to ask us why

Oh, If you have known her for a while

You’ll know all about her style

And her sunshine smile…

And her sunshine smile…


♡♡♡


Music and magic in her daily trip

Always has a song dancing on her lips

If you misbehave she’ll crack her whip

For each and every slip



Family and friends, they love her much

For all that she does, as she has such

A bundle of goodwill in her gentle clutch

In Each and every touch



Years never dim her shine and love

Sharp as a hawk and a gentle dove

Oh, If you have known her for a while

You’ll know all about her style

And her sunshine smile…

And her sunshine smile…



Compassion and care is her motto true

When she sets her mind she’ll see it through

She’s always there when you’re feeling blue

For each and every crew



Passionate she is for a country song

She likes making lists either short or long

The axle that makes all the wheels so strong

In Each and every throng



Sing and celebrate and hold her hand

Years that pass by are just prints in sand

Oh, If you have known her for a while

You’ll know all about her style

And her sunshine smile…

And her sunshine smile…



Glad she’s been lighting up the sky

Never ever stopping to ask us why

Oh, If you have known her for a while

You’ll know all about her style

And her sunshine smile…

And her sunshine smile…

♡♡♡

      This is absolutely beautiful and sweet! The video was simply amazing and left me smiling from ear to ear. I hadn't even realized you were referring to anyone in particular until I read further and that was even more impressive. How gracious of you to do such a lovely tribute to what seems to be like a lovely lady. Thank you for this and sending me her way!
