The following words were spoken to me this morning by the oh-so-wise eleven year old young lady living in this household!
“Everything is alright – inside of us – when we laugh!” Emma L.B. 2013
Now that’s a quote I can really get my arms around, both figuratively and literally! Children do have a way of reminding us of what is truly important in life. And they are always the most simple of things. So why are our lives so complicated? How come we lose this awareness when we grow up, and why?
I recently visited one of my blogging friends, Doris who posted (with great photos) that a fun way to “escape” is to spend time with children. Check her post out, just click on her link! She’s right!
The talented and delightful Emma was recording her laughter for a video she is making (both her and her brother are into movie making). Emma’s area of interest is making moving cartoon videos from her original characters that she draws. Jack – two years her senior is also into Stop Motion videos, lego pieces and people (he has one of the sinking of the titanic), and also racing/crashes with matchbox cars. (The process is laborious and takes hours). They both do their own uploading and editing including voice overs of their videos!
So Emma has been recording her laughter and giggles and playing with it for the voice over for her latest cartoon video. She just came into my writing room and asked me to listen to her laughter. We both ended up laughing for 5 minutes. So naturally I had to share her “giggle” and her reason why laughter is a good thing, with all of you!
Essence of the infectious giggle as demonstrated by Emma!
Make the best of your day, even in the most difficult of circumstances. Laughter does help! So do children!
