Sharing the Laughter ~

"A laugh changes everything, at least for a moment. That's because you can't feel two emotions at once. So do something that makes you laugh, or that makes others laugh. It's the most priceless gift." Author Unknown

I saw the above quote this morning and I believe it's so true. I've also heard that even if you don't feel like it, if you force yourself to smile, it can change your entire mood. Children often illustrate this best with complete abandon and unpretentiousness. So, tonight I'm passing along these infectious smiles! Enjoy!

Until next time,

This is SO true. You really cannot be a grouch if you smile :) I use this all the time at work when I'm dealing with a 'not-so-nice' person on the phone. They can't see the smile but they HEAR kindness in my voice. LOVE these pictures.

Those are so sweet, Cindy :) Children are so precious! We've spent the day celebrating our Avalon Grace's 3rd birthday and it's just been such a sweet day!

I wanted to stop by and invite you to come participate in my Spring Giveaway Jubilee. There are several giveaways up already and more will be added throughout the month. You can enter them all and even link up one of your own, if you'd like!

I hope you're having a great afternoon!

That quote is so true, Cindy, and these pictures are so perfect. I love to laugh. We have certain people in our lives that make us laugh even more. My children always make me laugh. Have a happy Friday.
