One of my favorite things about my life is how much laughter there is. My husband is a funny guy. My kids are hilarious. My friends are happy and fun, and there is a lot of laughing.
When Kate got asked to the boys' choice dance last night, we all laughed, because MC drew a funny picture that said, "Will work for love." And gave Kate about a million blue candy canes. The back of the picture said, "To find out who asked you to the dance, use these candy canes to spell out MC." It was funny and we all laughed.
We laughed when Paul said his dinner smelled funny and he didn't want to eat it. We laughed when Kate said, "Stop smelling it and just eat it!"
We laughed again when Paul and Nicole were arguing about the difference between back scratches and back caresses and back tickles. Paul was demonstrating what a caress looks like on the Brita pitcher. That was pretty funny and we all laughed.
Even when Dennis put a pan of oil to heat on the stove and then went outside to help Paul move furniture, and there was smoke billowing through the house and the pan burst into flames and he grabbed the pan and ran it outside, we all laughed because instead of smothering the fire or just dropping the pan in the mud and snow, he started waving the flaming pan around trying to get the fire out. It was funny. And since the house didn't burn down, we laughed.
Life is hard sometimes, and I am just so grateful to be surrounded by people who make me smile, and more importantly, make me laugh.
