When I was a kid, my brownie troupe leader thought I was hyper-active and often made me sit in the corner and told me to chill out. Well--maybe I was a little.. excited sometimes :) but Momma always told me I was just a happy kid. As one grows up, it can be harder to be "just happy" but I've tried. And I've been blessed enough that, often, my eyes sparkle into a smile of simple joy and contentment.
Anyway, what's the point of this post? Have you ever wondered what "renidemus" means (ok, admittedly, probably not). Wanna try something neat? Go to google.com and type in "renidemus." My stuff! So there you go--a nice easy way to find me on the web.. if you can remember how to spell renidemus.
It's from the Latin verb "renidere" which means: to shine back , glitter; to beam with joy, laugh, smile. And renidemus is (are you ready for this?) the first person plural present active indicative form of the verb (I think I got that all right). And so it means:
"let's shine back; let's glitter; let's beam with joy; let's laugh; let's smile"
So get to it!
so many wonderful smiles in my life :) Count your blessings!
