G: Glorious Giggles

I have yet to find a sound that I appreciate more than the sound of a child's laughter.  The only person who could possibly remain unaffected by the glorious music of innocent giggles, would have to be a robot. 

And one of the absolute best parts about finding yourself lucky enough to be in the presence of such a golden sound, is that you can't help but crack a smile yourself.  In fact those glorious giggles are so contagious, it's almost guaranteed that within seconds you'll be struck with a case of full-blown laughter yourself.

  1. You are right, Jessica, there is something about those giggles that just delights one's heart. Baby giggles are the best, but a good sincere wholesome belly laugh from anyone is a joy to hear. Good 'G' word. God bless, Maria from Delight Directed Living btw, I have got to go look up what kholorabi is.

    1. I agree a good belly laugh from anyone is contagious! :) a kohlrabi is delicious, it kind of tastes like a cross between a turnip and a cabbage.

    1. I agree. I've even read that if you're in a bad mood, if you smile despite the grumpy blues, it will help lift your mood.

  4. Whenever I am sad, I am cheered up when I get to visit a friend's baby. You just can't stay sad for long around a baby giggling! Great post!

  5. Totally, utterly, whole-heartedly agree, Jessica.

    I dream of a life filled with laughter, as I was blessed with so easily as a child with some of the funniest siblings on the planet.

    Even thinking about laughter and fun times is fantastic to me, thanks for the reminder :)

  6. Baby laughs are the kind you just want to bottle up and let loose on a cloudy day - love them! Their laughter is never forced, fake or done with malice. So genuine. What a wonderful post. Happy A to Z-ing!

  10. There is such joy in a child's laughter, so pure and true. You are right, we just have to break out in one big smile. And I am so sorry about your misadventure on the Greyhound bus. I hope the woman was kicked off the bus.

    1. Smiling is one of the most important things to do in a day. :) The Greyhound misadventure simply left me with a funny story to tell. The woman wasn't kicked off the bus. We were told by the bus driver that one of us had to get off and she chose to leave. Funny enough the overhead compartment door fell off and clunked her right in the head before she left. I've NEVER seen one of those fall off. Hmm, funny how karma works. :)

    Sorry to hear about the bus situation. That woman sounds like a mess.

    1. She certainly was a mess. It's not good for anyone to be so angry, and over nothing. I felt sorry for her, and her poor daughter. The woman was so busy focusing on me, her little girl was sleeping and nearly rolled off her seat and onto the floor. :(

  12. It's so true! Of course there's the moment at which the laughter turns maniacal and you begin to wonder if someone will die. Or at least, that's the problem we face in this house. Maybe there are too many little laughing bodies.
