(Maybe it's because I have a weird, and crazy-loud laugh? Adrain assures me that's not the case, but is he really going to tell me if I do? Of course he isn't.)
I feel as though blah circumstances of life over the past few years have stolen some of my laughter and I'm taking it back!! I want my hoodlums to remember that their mama could cut loose and laugh her head off. I want to find the humor in random situations again. I want "LOL" to actually mean that I threw my head back and laughed... not simply smiled for a second. (SFAS) You know?
finding joy in the simple things again... that's where the laughter begins to bubble. That's where I misplaced it.
a fun thing into each day so far this week.We did stuff. Randomly important fun stuff. I tucked my phone and worries over urgent "whatevers" and to-do lists aside, gave them my whole attention, and listened to them- really listened and you know what? They are becoming some funny little people. They both laugh easily and that makes it easy for me. I simply have to be open to the moments. The memory-making-important moments. And laugh with them.
