15 Nice Stories That Make Me Smile!!!
I was talking to my 8 years old little sister about the recent divorce my parents went through. I asked her if it made her sad that they didn't love each other anymore. To which she responded, "I think maybe they just love each other more when they're apart."
Today, I asked my 6 years old son what he wants to be when he grows up. He said, "Mommy, all I want to be is happy."
My father told me, "Just go for it and give it a try! You don't have to be a professional to build a successful product. Amateurs started Google and Apple. Professionals built the Titanic."
I interviewed a woman who is terminally ill. "So," I tried to delicately ask, "What is it like to wake up every morning and know that you are dying?" "Well," she responded, "What is it like to wake up every morning and pretend that you are not?"
Everyone skating was young, except one guy in his mid-70’s. He kept falling down and smiling. And all the kids kept laughing along with him. I asked him why he decided to skate today. He said, "I was at work earlier and realized I had never been skating. So here I am."
My neighbor's house burned to the ground. I told him that I couldn't even begin to imagine what it would be like to have my whole life burn to the ground. He looked at me, smiled and said, "My life didn’t burn to the ground. If it did, I wouldn’t be standing here."
Today, when my dad came home from work, he kissed my baby sister on the forehead and then came over and did the same to me. He said, “I know I don’t say it often, but you two are my world. I love you both with all my being.” I’ve been smiling ever since. I had no idea words could be so powerful.
My grandpa died. As I was crying and telling my grandma how sorry I was, she said, “Let’s stop being so sad and instead celebrate the 80 wonderful years he was alive of which he spent with me.” My grandpa died. As I was crying and telling my grandma how sorry I was, she said, “Let’s stop being so sad and instead celebrate the 80 wonderful years he was alive of which he spent with me.”
After 30 years, my husband quit smoking cigarettes. When I asked him why he decided to quit, he said, "I want to grow old with you." After 30 years, my husband quit smoking cigarettes. When I asked him why he decided to quit, he said, "I want to grow old with you."
I turned 25. I met a guy who asked me if it was the best day of my life. I said it was and he said, "Me too!" When I asked why, he said, "Because yesterday is the past and tomorrow isn't guaranteed, that's why this very moment is the best moment of my life."
My grandfather told me, "Stop worrying so much. Worry is using your imagination to create things you don't want."
My teacher told me to "make a good day." I replied, "Don't you mean 'have a good day?'" She smiled and said, "No, you can't have a good day, you need to make it a good day."
I was giving campus tours and had a student in a wheel chair in the group. We talked all day and he never stopped smiling. I found out that he had a scholarship to play basketball before his accident left him paralyzed. He told me, "It didn't ruin my life, it just changed my circumstances."
My father told me, "Sometimes, you have to let go of the good things to catch the great ones."
I was smiling to myself as I was walking home and enjoying the fresh air. Some random stranger smiled back at me and said, “Nice to see you!” I quickly replied, “I’m sorry. Do we know each other?” “No,” she replied. “I just enjoy your smile.” Thank You Very Much Sompong Yusoontorn
