The J’s have it

In Outlook, sometimes symbols get mis-translated as a message is sent from one user to another.  In particular, the smile emoticon [ 🙂 ] sometimes gets changed into the letter “J”.  I therefore find it fitting that over the course of three days, three friends whose names begin with “J” have all sent me fantastic smiles!

Today’s shared smile is from my friend J in Canada, who sent me an email saying, “This is an image someone posted on my Facebook page. Soon as I saw it I knew I had to send it to you. Isn’t it just precious?  This was the comment she posted with it: This is a cross section of a single blade of grass, stained for the microscope. The smiley faces are the channels that the water is drawn up through. It was just taken the other day at the EM lab [my husband] works with. I’m just fascinated by it!”

As I eagerly opened the attached image, I was stunned by what greeted me:

Talk about FANTASTIC!  This picture is so darn cute it almost looks ‘made up’ to me.  I’ve always enjoyed the vitality of green lawns in the spring and summer, but grass now has a whole new level of meaning for me.   I love it!

Friends, thanks for sharing your smiles.  Whether you send pictures, leave comments, ‘like’ a post, share this site with others, or simply read and grin, I genuinely appreciate your positive energies!  🙂
