Isn’t it awful when you miss someone so bad that you can’t even smile.

I have been there at one stage of my life…. And it really hurts.

These days I have learned to smile regardless of how I feel because it

definitely makes you feel better….. And it makes everyone else feel better too!

So keep on smiling and keep on dancing … it’s good for YOU

Oh, forgot to say — and I hope you enjoy this little dance!

 

  See you on the floor sometime....  Jan
