Lately, I’ve been noticing laughter – contagious laughter. You know, the kind that you hear and just can’t help chuckling or laughing along even if you don’t know what sparked the giggle, belly laugh or guffaw!
It’s hard not to laugh when twirling with a young one, round and round on a delightful spring day, barefoot in lush green grass. Especially when his gurgle-giggles come bubbling out.
When there are three little cuties each on a swing calling, “Push me again! Please!” Giggles escape as under dogs tickle their tummies. This make me giggle as well.
On a train ride recently, the conversations were mostly hushed except for the neighbors across the aisle. A mother and grown daughter were having the time of their lives! I’m not quite sure what language they were speaking; definitely not English. Although I couldn’t understand a word they were saying, it was obviously very funny. These women were not merely chuckling, they were cackling! Every once in a while, they realized how loud they were and would try to restrain themselves, to no avail. They would again burst into loud high-pitched cackling and even a snort or two! Hubby and I sat trying to contain our own laughter, but failed miserably. It makes me LOL just thinking about it now; their laughter was contagious!!
This morning, Hubby sat at the computer laughing. I told him it wasn’t fair for him to sit there laughing with out sharing what was so hilarious. I quickly guessed the he had received an email from Daughter On-the-other-side-of-the-World. They have this special language and humor that is only completely understood by “Sunshine” and “Moonshine”. Emails between the two are incomplete if a corny joke is not included. They also seem to try to out do one another with lyrical poetry.Here is just a small sample:

questions then expect a reply!”
