So I mentioned in my bio that I like Dean Martin. Have you heard his song titled “Powder Your Face with Sunshine”? (Lyrics written by Carmen Lombardo and Stanley Rochinski.) It so perfectly sums up one of the major themes of this blog. Being joyful and radiant. If you’ve never heard it, you should get yourself a downloaded copy off of the “Dino, The Essential Dean Martin” album.
It’s also known under the title, “Smile! Smile! Smile!”. Feeling the warmth? Not yet? Ok – just read the following lyrics from it while you close your eyes and picture what he’s singing. Well, I guess you can’t really close your eyes and read at the same time, but you know what I mean!
Powder Your Face With Sunshine
Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while
Whistle a tune of gladness
Blue never was in style
The future’s brighter when hearts are lighter
So smile, smile, smile!
The song continues on with a few more lines, but you get the gist. Make yourself beautiful with joy and laughter. It’s completely contagious, and your husband and family will love you for it. Now seriously, download the album. Then you can play it all day like I do.
