I have a very distinctive laugh. It’s kind of loud, but I can’t help that. Everyone says it is unique and very contagious.
When I hear my laugh inside my head, it sounds fine. When I hear my laugh outside, as in a recording, it is a grating sound to me. I don’t know how other people can stand it!
I got my laugh from my mother. I laugh just like her. When we laughed together, we could shake walls. We certainly couldn’t hide anywhere when we were joyful and giggly.
I laugh easily and often everyday. My sense of humor is well developed. I inherited it from my father, who had a very dry wit. He was a good joke and story teller.
I look for the funny side of almost everything – even the saddest of occasions. Often, people view me as pretty quirky because I can laugh at the oddest of situations.
I have found laughter to be helpful in so many ways. It can relieve tension as well as break barriers. It can tell a truth as well as reveal a lie. It can ease pain and calm anxiety. It can provide joy and explain loss.
I can hardly think of a personal event in my life that wasn’t improved or eased with a chuckle or a good belly laugh.
My laugh is a gift and it’s a gift to give to others. I am now responsible to pass on my gift to my children, grandchildren, family and friends. What was given to me must be given away every day.
And so I laugh. I laugh at funny jokes. I laugh at ironic events. I laugh at silliness. I laugh at myself. I laugh with babies and toddlers. I laugh at failure. I laugh at loss. I laugh at forgetfulness. I laugh at old age.
I just laugh. I must laugh.
Never stop that unique laugh 😂

I couldn’t even if I tried – which I will most definitely not! Thanks for your thoughts.
You are such a gift. Good and healing thoughts to you. Love you.
Love you more sweetie!!! You are the best gift to me!
I feel the same way about you. I have read a few of your blog posts to my sister, who is not on the internet after retiring. They make us two laugh and cry. She loves your quilt posts. Recently I shared your button 365 project and the post about your grandson and the new musical instrument. I send you all Reiki healing energy daily. Good and healing thoughts to you.
Yes, what you said is ALL true and yes you must laugh at, for and with all of us!
I can’t imagine not having all of you around me with your laughter, hugs and smiles. You give me the strength I need to face everyday.
Keep us laughing with you, Granny. We need you.
My pleasure!!! Laughing together is such a treat and a blessing!!!
