Today, I’m thankful to have met a very special child. Children are always special, but I feel this one in particular has a very advanced soul. Today, also, I’m thankful to have heard and shared in a lot of laughter. I met new friends and ran into long lost friends. It was a special day, indeed.
A study found that the average four year old laughs four hundred times a day. The average adult in the happiest of countries laugh sixteen times a day. Why do children laugh? They live in the present moment without cares and guilt, feeling loved, finding newness in all they behold. Children live with a freedom – a freedom that fades with each passing year. A child says what he/she feels, speaking from the heart. A child is true to his/her own inner nature. Life moves from within to without.

Yay, children! Yay, laughter! Great picture choice!
Laughter is such a wonderful thing. I wonder, too, why we (adults) don’t do it more.
