Laughter is Beautiful!

Inspiring Kids, laughter, fun with children, parenting

Do you think laughter is contagious?

I think it’s beautiful. The sound of our kids laughing is one of the most beautiful sounds in all of creation.

To laugh is to enjoy life. It expresses your deep happiness and can brighten anyone’s day.
Being able to laugh at yourself builds character. It can change your mood instantly.
And really, how fun is it to laugh? – especially when you can’t stop!
Laugh with your friends, laugh at all the silly things you do, find humor in yourself.
Laugh deep and full till your stomach hurts and watch the world around you light up with joy!

This sweet video really puts the life of a mother into perspective. Definitely worth a watch!

Sweet dreams, with love.




Often after I put our kids to bed I find myself thinking an all too familiar question, “What thought or feeling do I think I’ve left them with today?” And it always comes down to one thing.

Of course I hope I’ve instilled some wonderful bit of wisdom. I hope there were memorable moments that have built them up. I hope they’ve laughed ever so deeply and uncontrollably. I hope I’ve helped to strengthen their faith. I hope they feel secure and confident. I hope there have endless hugs and kisses and warmth. I hope there have been many more words of kindness than responsibilities… But more than anything, I hope that they know how deep my love for them is. I hope they feel so unbelievably loved. Unconditionally. Deeply. Beautifully. Loved.

The love a parent feels for their children is something so special. The love I have for our children is what has inspired me to write this book. This is one of my favorite spreads. I can’t wait to share this with our children. If you’d like to learn more about “Life is Sweet” please visit :
