"What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul."
Soap applied to body = cleansing.
Laughter applied to soul - cleansing.
I've said it before and I'll most likely say it again: Laughter is my most favorite sound. My house was filled to overflowing with laughter last weekend. It overflowed with activities: a bachelor's party for my future son-in-love. A bachelorette's party for my daughter.(No, I did not attend.) Finishing up edits on my novel. A family photo shoot--my Mother's Day request. And a belated celebration of my son's birthday and Father's Day.
Whew! It was tiring to write that list.
But having family coming and going--and then finally staying long enough to enjoy grilling shish kebobs--provided lots of opportunities for laughter.
Laughter pushes the negative out of me--and sweeps in and renews my spirit.
In Your Words: What's the last thing you laughed about? Did it lighten your spirit?
