#BlogFlash2013: Day One – Laughter


#BlogFlash2013 (March): Day 1 - LaughterWhen our eldest grandchild laughed for the first time, his mom, Jen, sent me a phone message of his laughter. It made me smile and I installed it as my ring tone. Every time my phone rang, I heard Sammy laughing, and my heart swelled with joy.

There really is nothing in the world like a baby’s laugh.

My husband, Dave, has a wonderful, offbeat sense of humor. I love his quirky personality-and I love him for making me laugh. I love the sound of my children laughing, alone or together, and I’ll make an absolute utter fool of myself to get a laugh out of any one of our five little bundles of grandchild joy. But the sound of a stranger’s laughter makes me smile, too. Laughter must affect the dopamine levels in our brain, because the sound is like an instantaneous, natural antidepressant.

When I think of the synapses of the brain, one connected to the other, I see a long chain of humans, the sound of our collective laughter joining us to one another, connecting us, heart to heart, brain to brain, elevating us, bringing forward our best.
