It’s been a funny old week for me so far. After the change of heart I was already having and then for it to be cemented by a visit to Blogfest over the weekend coupled with giving up #PoCoLo, it has suddenly made me re-evaluate everything in my life.
The most important thing is my family. I was able to spend lots and lots of quality time with my mum over the weekend and this week I have been able to spend a little more time with Grace and even got round to playing dolls with her (we had a great time!). Ross and I had a fabulous conversation on Sunday night and we now have a much better game plan as we approach the new year.
Laughter has to be one of the most important things in our life and I share lots of that with Ross and Grace on a regular basis. The photo is one of us with Grace’s friend, Molly, at Thorpe Park back in May. The log flumes never fail to make us crack up with laughter!
My poem this week sums up just how important this action is in our lives. As is the norm now, there is a recording of me reading the poem just below.
Laughter is the tonic whenever I’m feeling bad
Laughter is the thing that cheers me up when I’m feeling sad
Laughter brings me up whenever I’m feeling down
Laughter, well it’s a job, for comedians and clowns
Whenever I hear laughter I can’t help but smile
Whenever I feel laughter I’m happy all the while
Whenever I see laughter I want to do it too
A little taste of laughter is good for me and you
So remember there is laughter even through the tears
It’s what will bring you happiness through all your living years
Whenever there’s no sign of hope and everything is lost
Laughter, it will see you through at no extra cost
