43 Months #TBCSmiles

It's the 15th and time for this month's smiles. As usual you guys shared some belters. I think the snow was exhilarating for everyone and we all blew away a few cobwebs. I've never had so many outdoor photos - not even in mid Summer, and your snow photos made me miss it already and  hope we get it more often. Nice one to everyone who got a snowday, boo humbug to all the bosses and schools who didn't let some of you have a day to play too...

I was tempted to do a special Mother's Day 9 Smiles this month because there were so many family shots. It was lovely to see. Mother's Day is hard for so many people, for so many reasons. For every mother without a child, every child without a mother, every single parent doing 2 jobs and yet getting no card or day off, absent family and missing relations. It's one of the most bitter-sweet of annual events, a reminder as much of what we have, as what we have lost. I hope your day was a good one.

Here are 9 of the most awesome smiles this month. Thank you for everyone who took part, if you want to see everyone else's, check out the hashtag #TBCSmiles on Instagram to look at them all. It's well worth it. You'll be grinning the same as I always am.

These smiles were shared with us by the following photographers:

Anyone is always welcome to join in, just tag any photo with a smile!

We had our own smiles too, and I have collected the ones I captured. If you don't know why we collect our smiles, it is not a happy tale, but you can find out here. Smiles are the reminder and the reason why we carry on. Joy is everything, and it is always possible to find, even on the rainiest of days.

Seems 'thumbs up' was popular with my two boys over the last 30 days. We have smiles courtesy of a lovely vegan meal that my children treated me to, 2 years since we won a free expensive cat and our youngest boys' first snow day!
