Laughter

 

The child in you, like all children, loves to laugh, to be around people who can laugh at themselves & life. Children instinctively know that the more laughter we have in our lives, the better…Wayne Dyer.¬†A life full of love, peace of mind and laughter is a blessing. Perhaps, laughter can be sweet music to our soul. I don’t know all the medical/scientific benefits of laughter. However, I do know from experience¬†laughter makes me happy especially when it’s honest to goodness humor. My whole body is engage. I can laugh so hard that tears fall and my stomach start to hurt. Laughter relieves me of so much tension even when dealing with difficult situations/issues. Honestly, we all have various level of problems but laughter can connect us. True, it can be hard to find some measure of humor in our problems but laughter is a gift to help us cope. Yes, in life someone will make us upset but then they can say or do something to make us laugh melting our heart. Our holding on to anger, resentment or hurt can rob our happiness. On the other hand, forgiveness give us room to allow laughter/joy in our life. Maybe laughter should be a good healthy part of our various relationships. After all, we all need a little bit of a sense of humor about our own flaws. I think when M see me laugh at my own silly wiliness/mistakes, hopefully it helps him be o.k with being himself/human. Yesterday, I misplace my glasses. I was looking everywhere. I even asked M had he seen my glasses. M just laughed. I kept looking all over the house. Finally feeling defeated, I sat down next to M. He reached up and pulled off my glasses on top of my head! I was like really. I hugged and thanked M. I could not help but laugh at my own forgetfulness and M perhaps thinking mom being silly. M laughing is a joyous sound to me…one of the best part of being a mom. M is teaching me everyone needs love and laughter so find a reason in the little things to laugh each day…simple things in life can make us happy!
