Joy in a Smile

Health wise, this day has been beyond craptastic. But today, I witnessed pure joy in the smile of a little and it was awesome.

My little ‘sister’ is graduating from Grade Nine today and it’s the first time that she’s really had to get dolled up for anything. And this afternoon, in my dining room, I got to watch her transformation unfold. 

Over the last week, I’ve taken her for her first set of gel nails and her first spray tan. And today, she experienced her very first beauty makeover. Fake eyelashes and all.

To say that she was over the moon excited about the whole experience, would be a massive understatement.  But when she looked into the mirror to see the final look, it wasn’t excitement that filled her eyes, it was joy, pure joy.

It was a joy that said, I am beautiful. I am confident. I am proud. 

It was an absolute honor to witness her week of firsts and to see her smile at what she saw in the mirror.

Happy Friday Friends. What was your joyful moment today?
