THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER! DAY 11...

Laughter!!!
Oh, how I adore laughing! How I live for that next moment in my life where I can't breathe because I'm laughing so hard!! Those moments where I have tears running down my cheeks. Those times where I am so tickled that I am *almost* embarrassed!

I was born to laugh. I was born to find the "funny" where there is no funny. I was born to find humor in the oddest of places, in the most wrong of places....it's who I am.

My mother thinks my sense of humor is, at times, anything but humorous. On more than one occasion she has said that "people don't always think you're funny....they can't tell when you're teasing".....

Oh, and she's been right more than one time, I'm sure of it! But, you know what? As hard as I might try, as good as I might try to be, I can't help myself! This is who I am - excitable, easily entertained, spirited, "one who teases".....it's all me and for most of my life I have tried to NOT be all of those things....until about five years ago.....

It was then that God told me, showed me actually, that it's okay to be me and that I don't need to "settle down"; I don't need to "calm down"....I just need to be me!

Oh, it was so freeing! I am now free to find the humor where no one else does, tease with a heart, be easily entertained and not be ashamed of being too loud, of laughing too much, of snorting, of getting excited about life and of laughing so hard that my diet Coke streams out of my nose! WOO HOO!!

To me, it all ties in together....the easily excitable, one who teases, has a loud laugh, laughs too much (is there really such a thing???), is always looking for the next "i can't breathe" moment......it all equals ME.
THE GIFT OF LAUGHTER.......that is my blessing for today.
This flea market tent was set up at Round Top, Texas '06, and was *shocking* my favorite one!

well, we must all be in the same boat. when others are laughing, i am looking at them, like "i've heard that a million times and no longer find it funny". however, give me something odd, obscure or out of the normal range and i will think it's hilarious while finally the others stand staring at me with their blank faces which read "i don't get it". enough said.

Taylor, thanks for taking the time to comment - I always look forward to hearing someone at the studio door, looking up, and seeing you standing there...because we always have such fun together!
I know I've said it before, but it bears repeating, you are growing into a fine young woman and I am very, very proud of you! Jan
