86 Months....# TBCSmiles

Hello! It is definitely time for some smiles. October is always our quietest month, and it's easy to see why. The night time is creeping into our day, the cold is forcing us into jumpers and coats. Everyone is back into the post-holiday routine of work and the Autumn school term, but not yet getting excited about Christmas. It's all a bit meh...

It can make us all a bit gloomy, and when you feel gloomy, it's easy to forget it won't be for long. That's when the collection of smiles really helps. It reminds you of the sunshine, the sparkle, the fun times. It reminds you of the things you like to do, the things you said you'd do again. The things you can do right now. It reminds you of the plans you can make, the places you can go. Best of all, it reminds us that a smile has power. It has so much power that it can last far longer than that moment, and spread far further than the same room. And it shows us we can always do this. 

A huge thank you to those of you who shared smiles this month. They are a joy, and there are some absolute beauties - full on whole face grins. The sort that are really infectious, and warm the heart right to the centre... 

Anyone is welcome to join in, just use the hashtag #TBCSmiles on Instagram. Here are 9 of the biggest from the last month, but you can find over 8,000 on Instagram. Enough to easily cheer up the gloomiest of days.

My family did make our own smiles too. In between illnesses and homework, we also had a 13th birthday. I've only captured 3 smiles on my camera, but I was witness to many more...
