Weekly Gratitude...

Laughter. There isn't a day that goes by our home isn't filled with the wondrous sound of laughter... I love hearing it... when Rainee plays with her dad... trys to tickle mommy... when Rainee plays with Champ... or laughs at something funny on television. Whether you know what the other is laughing about or not, laughter makes another person smile... laughter can be contagious... if you let it.

Laughter shouldn't be contained... it's what I love about listening to Rainee's... it's spontaneous... joyful... full of life... intoxicating... it's pure happiness. There is always plenty of it every day around here... but this week... those blissful moments were caught in many different places... when Molly came over for breakfast and they laughed over doggie pancakes... on St. Patrick's Day, while her class looked for the mischievous leprechaun around school... to hear their laughter and excitement, was such a treat to watch... then there were the giggles she made while making her own little leprechaun trap... and when our potatoes turned green, it was priceless... what a mischievous little guy he is! And how can I leave out the roar of laughter as she played on the bouncer at a birthday party with her friends... All this delightful laughter... makes a heart happy!

So this week I'm thankful the little extraordinary moments that envelopes our home with laughter. They are bliss. I hope your day... your week... is filled with the joys and delightful sound of laughter...

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter. ~ E.E. Cummings
