Laughter and Giggles {Slice of Life}


Laughter.  Giggles.  Tears of fun.  I look around the room and think I'm blessed.  I'm blessed for the company of seven friends.  I'm blessed for time with women I adore and look up to for inspiration and guidance not only as a teacher; as a friend and a human.  Putting the day to day grind of life on pause brought me more than I expected.  It reminded me how fun it is to laugh and giggle so hard you begin to cry.  It reminded me how fun it is to spend time with just adults; all trying their best each day.  It reminded me we all have stories to tell and by spending the time to share and listen to stories we create further connections.  That feeling of connection is a catalyst to keep going forward.  To try each day and keep looking for moments of laughter and giggles.

    1. It's easy to forget how important friends are when we caught up within the day to day grind.
