I am one that thinks that laughter is truly good for the soul.
I just read in the book that I finished yesterday- Remarkable Changes by Jane Seymour about laughter. She reminded me that no one should ever take themselves too seriously...life is too short for that.
There is time to have laughter fill our lungs! 

As Big Kiddo jumped on the bed and tickle tackled me yesterday, I thought to myself that that is what love is. Not arguing, being right, stubborn, proud, rude, or hurting one another.
Love is many things, but one thing that love should be more of is laughter. 
Love is not always taking everything so seriously.
Isn't it crazy that love can make you cry and laugh in the same week?!
Laughter can lighten the load and take anxiety away. 
Big Kiddo and I went walking for about 5 miles yesterday afternoon...
We talked and exercised, it was so nice. 
I suddenly got a burst of energy.
I attacked him full speed ahead by pushing and tickling him.
Then I realized that I had amo.
I had my water bottle, full of water!
Ha...better run Big Kiddo!
We pranced around the campus we were walking at.
I almost got a girl and her labtop all wet...oops!
He drank his water but not really.
He spit out the water and it came squirting out of his teeth...
All over my face and hair!
Now you are in BIG trouble Big Kiddo...
I poured my water down his back,
He water spit on me again
{sounds gross I know but it was such a far reaching water spit}
and plus I was hot so it was refreshing...
I laughed until I cried.
Then we raced each other down a flight of steps.
Laughter and love combined is truly grand I must say.
I felt lighter than air...
Do you ever frolick around like a child and feel as light as air?
Well I did and I am going to make more of an effort to laugh more often.
Laugh until my stomach hurts.
Laugh until I cry...
Laugh until I can't laugh anymore...
Do me a favor Ocean Dreamers...
If you find yourself having a really bad day or week.
Just find something to laugh about.
Big or small.
It will make the world of difference, I promise.
You will like you can conquer any problem in the world. 


Have a wonderful day Ocean Dreamers...
Full of laughter!!

  36. The fact that the hubs makes me laugh on ma daily basis is one of my very favorite things about him!

  37. I love it! Love to laugh! It's the best...I do agree!!! :0)

  38. Laughter is awesome! Beautiful post!

  39. I had to laugh when I read about your water battle with BK, because I love squirt guns. Yes, even at my age, I still love squirting water all over my friends and family and I should add that I'm very competitive when it comes to this particular sport(?).

    It is particularly fun on a hot day at the beach! I have at least a dozen sets, from tiny to very large. Since my children are grown and my granddaughter will be nineteen this week, I have no excuse to visit toy stores, but there you will find me, checking out the newest water weapons. (Of course, I never tell the clerk they are for me!)


Thanks for the comment love! Candy sends you and puppy hello (aka barky bark)!
