My head almost popped off

If anyone had seen me, they would have sworn I was under the influence of some intoxicating agent. After laughing so hard my head felt like it was going to pop off, I got out of the van, still laughing, and was stumbling backwards when my heels hit the low-lying bush, and I began listing back....back....back....which only made me laugh harder. Bien sur!

Chris has this ability to make me laugh harder than I ever have in my entire life. He made me laugh so hard I almost fell over a bush. And that made me laugh so hard my knees buckled, and he had to rescue me before I hit the ground. And he does this every day. Every day!

Laughing is the best medicine I've ever experienced. It doesn't matter what has happened or is going to happen or didn't happen, laughing puts it all in perspective: I'm still alive, still able to feel, still able to enjoy life.

What a gift.

thinking of some of the things we've giggled about, I wouldn't necessarily say it originated in "holiness"

I know, Grandma, I'm so happy! Isn't it wonderful!?!?

Yup, you're still alive, able to feel and all that. Plus you've got a great family, great kids and friends. And I'll skip the remarks about your person cuz you don't really need an ego massage...
Why shouldn't you be able to laugh?
Hope you can go on laughing, even when faced with adversity!!
Even troubles look smaller when one can laugh.

You're HAPPY!!!! It's so good to see, read, hear about happy folks, Bunnyjo. Keep on laughing.

Yeah, I agree with Dcver, even troubles look smaller when we laugh.

I laughed so hard last night, a friend visited, she's a riot. My neighbours say they love to hear me.

DCvR: I couldn't agree more. Thinking back on my month-long pity part in December, I can't help wanting to kick my own ass. I had it a lot better than I realized, and far far far better than most people. I am blessed!

GG: I would love to hear you laugh, too! You know what would be cool? You know how you can add an audio file to your profile? You should add one of you laughing. That would be awesome.

Shorty: Well, even if it doesn't make life all right, it sure does FEEL all right when we can laugh like that. C'est la vie!

Chills: Boy, are you out of it. Just laugh like you got the joke and everything will be fine.

Aw Bunnyjo, I have this LOUD laugh. My mother says it's "common". hahahaHAAA. If my stupid isp wasn't so slow [like all the isp's here] I'd do audio files.
