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.
