#SundaySongOfTheDay: “Happy Face”

For my first #SundaySongOfTheDay, I picked “Happy Face” by Destiny’s Child. What a good song to start the week. It’s full of joy, gospel call and response, and optimism. It’s a tune that determines that no matter what struggle I’m feeling or challenging I’m swimming, I will put on this happy face and live to […]
