Day 82 – Thankful that my children and grandchildren make me laugh

A few days ago one of my older daughters brought her daughter over for two nights of “sleepovers”.

My granddaughter is 5 years old and still requires LOTS of attention, but she loves to laugh and is fun to be around!

A couple of times this weekend, we both had each other almost doubled over from laughing so hard! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

On Monday, we grabbed a bag of bread to go feed the ducks at the park. I let her hold the bag in the back seat of the car.

I had barely driven one mile when her little voice piped up from the back seat, “Grandma, I ate another piece of bread; I didn’t mean to! I’m sorry.”

What this means is that she ate 2 or 3 pieces of fresh bread, and all that was left for the ducks were a couple of crusts.😁

I wasn’t upset; I actually thought it was kind of funny! So, I told her not to worry about it and turned around to go home and get some more bread!

We fed the ducks, and she had so much fun that we came home to get more bread a second time and went back to feed the ducks again!

Of course, she did take more occasional bites of bread as she shared with her duck “friends”! She would look at me with the biggest grin on her face! We had lots of fun!

My teens also have a way of making me laugh, from showing me funny memes, which I usually get, to making totally hyperbolic ironic remarks, to changing the words of songs!

I’m so thankful for these loved ones that make me laugh!

It is, truly, a healthful activity!

That would be a great new year’s resolution: LAUGH MORE! Don’t you think? πŸ˜‚

What about you? Do you have friends or family members that make you laugh? Do you make time to spend with them? Do you have any PG funny anecdotes you’d like to share?

    1. Yes!! Laughter is definitely healing! It’s been said for a long time that “Laughter is the best medicine.” I think that rejoicing can be grouped in with that as healing, too, which is all the more understandable why a loving God would tell us to rejoice always, even in the hard times. The very laughter and rejoicing are bringing about the healing that we need! And yes, it certainly does elevate the spirit!
      I’m so glad that you and your mom are able to laugh together so much! It certainly does bring about a positive relationship bond, as well!
      Thank you, and Blessings to you, too! πŸ™‚

  1. I looooove laughing with my family! πŸ˜„πŸ’™ my brother and I love playing a game I came up with called β€œcaption this” – we can play it anywhere, anytime by taking something (a stuffed animal, a picture of someone, etc.) and we’ll challenge the other person to caption what the person or character is thinking. We always get a good laugh! πŸ˜‚
