Currie's Gratitude 21 May 2013

There aren’t many things that DO as much good, ALWAYS, as in All. The. Time. as laughter. 

I know that Life is sometimes serious and even somber, yet laughter is still a blessing.

I’m sure I am NOT the only one to ever laugh inappropriately. 

Yet I am reminded when there is “inappropriate” laughter that it, too, is a gift.

Like tears, laughter is the heart in full expression. 

It loosens the stuff that needs loosening and clears space for BEing Present.

Giving myself a laughter pass has been a gentler, softer way to grow and change with Life’s twists, turns, and wild hands-in-the-air drops. 

Just as I have cried and cried and cried some more in feeling, dealing, and healing, so too have I laughed and laughed and laughed.

I think laughter is something to encourage and embrace. 

To inspire and demonstrate. 

When there is laughter amidst a great sadness it reminds us [or at least it reminds ME, I won’t pretend to speak for anyone else here] that Life is curious and amazing.

While losing someone we’ve loved and leaned upon isn’t the first place we’d expect there to BE laughter, it is just this sweet sound and release that often brings the Light into the darkness surrounding such a loss.

That’s what I BElieve anyway… 

I love you, Currie

I have often said that it was my sense of humor that has saved me. Whenever I have lost it--I have suffered greatly. Thankfully it was never for too very long...long enough, though. Keep smiling!! :)
