The joy of the giggle…

I have been staying with my two nephews the last few days while my sister and brother-in-law are enjoying a get away before Tax Season begins. We have lots of fun and good conversations, but I have to say, my all time favorite is the joy that bubbles up in me when I hear them giggle. It is often nothing that I would find so funny, but in their eyes, the moment is hilarious. The giggle fills the room when Peter in his goofy moments has Isaiah staggering as he giggles. The eyes that twinkle and the sounds that resounds when Peter thinks it is way to funny that Dutch has gas that is silent but deadly. The laughter I hear during the bean bag war (while I silently pray the laughter doesn’t turn to tears) is enough to want to freeze the scene as two brothers play together and enjoy the moment!

I do believe that the delight of a giggle, either experienced, shared or observed, can bring joy to one’s heart. I hope that you are around people who invite you to giggle from time to time….I hope you have people of all ages in your life who know how to giggle with eachother…I hope you have moments of listening to the giggle of a child….I hope laughter is a part of your life on a regular basis…

I find that it is not easy to capture the genuine giggle on a video, as it is often so spontaneous it would be ruined by pulling out the camera. But I do have a favorite kid giggle on You Tube that i have included in this post if you just need a moment of joy….take a very brief moment to enjoy this giggle…
