Albin News


The funny thing about sunflowers? They don’t care if our summer has been less than bright. They don’t care if we have been smiling since last time they were here. They come and shine and brighten our world, no questions asked. And no expectations.

Would it not be pleasant if more humans were like sunflowers. Expecting nothing in return and always greeting whoever passes their way with a smile and sunshine no matter who you are or what you can give them.

Happy couples are also kind of like sunflowers. They just can’t help but spread their love to others. And in turn build stronger communities through their marriage. Happy Anniversary to Jason and Jillian McLauglin, Aug. 23. They have been a huge sunflower to the Smith family.

Michael and Diane Lerwick celebrated their special day Sunday, Aug. 16. It would be a good bet they had lots of cooks in the kitchen cooking up a special breakfast.

Plant a little happiness. Call the town hall before 5 p.m. each Monday and we can all harvest a few smiles.
