Put On a Happy Face

I found these lyrics to this older song from the musical Bye Bye Birdie. Seemed fitting for our new habit of cheerfulness.

Gray skies are gonna clear up
Put on a happy face
Brush off the clouds and cheer up
Put on a happy face
Take off the gloomy mask of tragedy
it's not your style
You'll look so good that you'll be glad
Ya decide to smile
And spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
Put on a happy face
And if you're feeling cross and bitterish
Don't sit and whine
Think of banana split and licorice
And you'll feel fine
I knew a girl so glooming
She'd never laugh or sing
She wouldn't listen to me
Now she's a mean old thing
So spread sunshine all over the place
Just put on a happy face
So put on a happy face

Our church weekly mail-out carries a Focus on the Family bulletin once a month. I thought of you when I read this:

Caught!
To remind her four-, six- and seven-year-olds to be joyful at all times, Renae plays the "Caught Being Happy" game. When she sees one of her children in a good, sweet, or pleasant mood, she announces it, such as "Joseph wins the Caught Being Happy game." The rest of the family cheers and congratulates the winner.
