Laughing, Giggles and Smiles

Have you ever noticed that when you are happy you just laugh more. The last few days, well since Friday of last week really, I have been truly happy. Things are looking up… My last book was accepted by my editor– whoo hoo who can top that news!

I have tried to make things right in the situation that made me face my insecurities but you can’t make people want to listen or play along… I know I will face that insecurity again with someone else, in the same situation but the next time I will be stronger because I faced them so horridly this past time. I learned.

Anyway… back to the Giggles. The best sound in the world is hearing your child laugh… the second best your close friends and family. My kids know I am in a good mood when the tickle fingers come out.

I crunch down and hump my back my fingers arch out like a crooked witches and they start to wiggle… My kids get this huge smile on their face say NO! and run… I of course go scurrying after them with fingers moving as if I am typing on a key board. I chase them around and around… the tickle fingers are going to get you ! This is met with squeals of delight and laughter as they try to escape….
I eventually catch them and my fingers go to work tickling underarms and legs… as they laugh and laugh and I laugh and laugh.

My daughter has just started snorting when she laughs. This just cracks me up! Every time a snort comes with a giggle, she starts to laugh harder and then of course snorts more.

I remember the days of laughing so hard your stomach hurt or until you peed your pants(yes i hate to admit this I have done this as a young adult, college)… I have not had one of those long, long laughs in what feels like forever… I think it is long over do to happen… hum care to join me? tickle fingers are out!

Hugs, giggles, and tickle fingers.

    Hee hee. I’ve totally done the laugh so hard you peed. But I think the last time was in high school.

    Giggling and laughing and crying are all good for the soul.
