I just saw that I have a really nice smile.

I took a picture of myself while at the dog park; something told me to do it and to smile the best smile I thought I could muster.

I just came home to see what I uploaded from the dog park. God, what a beautiful smile I have! I had no idea!

My god I haven't cried like that in years.

You're doing better, Dillon. You've been rediscovering the goodness inside you for some weeks now. I know the pain is terrible but you're fighting back, clawing your way back. It's enough to bring a smile to the face. wink

Wow. This is great. Smile on, Magellan, smile on. And you made me smile as well.

For now we see through a glass, darkly.
