I Just Miss

I miss the cold crisp air
I miss the stillness that exists here
I miss the people from my memories of this place we played as children
I miss the trees and the beckoning as they call me to be still in their protection
I miss the crunch on the snow of my boots taking me there
I miss stopping and listening to the woods as my air makes clouds around me
I just miss

~ Laughter 2013 ~

I’ve been quiet.  Pain makes me either quiet or screaming.  Flip a coin on a day.  “Staying quiet doesn’t mean I have nothing to say, it means I don’t think you’re ready to hear my thoughts.”
We’ve had a year of journey in only a few months it seems and we are still figuring things out.
I don’t want to be a drag – so as my first 2013 post, I’d like to show you my short list of things that make me laugh lately:
1.      I know it is immature, but a farting utube had me laughing so hard I had tears rolling, and then sharing it with the office to watch a lot of people laughing uncontrollably.  Laugh until you cry.
2.      Learning that others see how funny my oldest child can be.  People have been telling me “he is so funny!”  Maybe they really want to say he is so immature, but reading my #1 might give some understanding to my funny son…..oh well.  I like knowing he can make people laugh….that helps me during the hard parts of being this 15 year old’s mom. He makes me laugh too when I’m not cyring and that isnt’ crying in laughter!
3.      Sophia.  Daily.  She is a sweetness that surprises so often.   It is the little things, like on Christmas Eve when leaving after a wonderful program, she sings:  Saturday night, Holy night, all is calm, all is bright.”  Those things make me smile from the roots of my hair to the tips of my dry toes!
4.      My husband.  He can just make me laugh.  My dry humor dude all the way.  Then I in turn like to see him laugh….showed him a “25 funniest autocorrects of 2012” – he was wiping the tears! 
5.      Big Bang Theory.
6.      My children laughing.
I'm hoping 2013 has lots of laughter in it.  
Here are some health benefits of laughter:
  • Reduces Heart disease
  • Natural pain killer
  • Improves breathing
  • Helps you lose weight
  • Gives good sleep
  • Decreases stress
  • Makes you look younger
I’ll stop here. A day without laughter is a day wasted - love to know, what is making you laugh these days?
