Be the reason someone SMILES today

Here is an adorable image from Gerda Steiner that is the stamp on the month called Hello Friend Turtle.  I went with a monochrome green card.  I used a wonderful sentiment from TLC.  I like to have a sense of humor and have used it frequently in my nursing career.  Sometimes things are so uncomfortable, but it is easier to laugh about it when you rather scream or cry.  Sometimes it is also a good distraction when people are anxious or in pain and you have to wait for medications or treatments to work.  Sometimes you just need to listen to people and acknowledge them and give them a reason to smile and keep going.  Well enough philosophy today....here is my card.

Lisa this is a really cute card. Love this wee Turtle and the colour green. I know what you mean about smiling, and what I've been through lately someone said they other day, you're so positive and always smiling, it's true I have been. But it's been hard and there have been a few days I could cry but it's not going to get me any where is it? Thanks so much for sharing your card with us over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge.
Hugs
