My kitchen window.
This is my street and it’s been home-sweet-home for the past year. We’re slowly getting to know our neighbors and I have to admit that having Mia has helped. We walk her along this sidewalk, which is on the opposite side of the street from our house, 2 – 3 times a day and she loves people so much that when the neighbors are out, she runs up to them and they think she’s just the sweetest thing! We’re lucky they’re dog people. One neighbor toward the end and her dog, Andrea and Foster, are usually out in the evenings and look forward to their visits with us; Andrea always has treats! There’s also the lady that has the really nice yard – the grass is lusciously green in the summer, her mulch is perfect and she has beautiful flowers, shrubs and trees – who loves petting Mia in the mornings. We’ve seen lots of other dogs in the street but we haven’t met all of them yet. Everyone else has been really nice but we’re still getting to know each other and we have plenty of time.
I’m thankful for laughter. It’s just so much fun to do and you know when you’re doing it you’re having fun. What’s not to love about that? It’s also a pretty powerful medicine; even on my crappiest days I’ll start to feel better if I can laugh. Of course that means I have to actually find something funny, but when I do, it makes me feel better.
I happen to have a huge smile and boisterous laugh. Don’t believe me? Just look at this photo (or almost any of my wedding photos):
Yup. This is just the way it is and I wouldn’t change it for anything. So, have you laughed today?
…wait, isn’t that from a cheese commercial? Oops. Oh, well. GET TO LAUGHING! 🙂
