Thankful Thursday

The day, yesterday.

The place, Funarium on Sukhumvit Soi 26 or other, Bangkok, Thailand.

Khun Kookai and I took the boys over to the fabulous Funarium. Much fun was had.

But now its Thursday, and on thursdays I like to reflect on what I am thankful for. And I like to get pretty specific. So this thursday I am thankful for the gift of laughter, because its easy to stop laughing. Life can get to you that way.

There is something healthful in laughter. It does something to you, if you realize how much you need it. I do. There have been times when our home hasn't had a lot of lightness. It got a little sad and dark at times. And heavy. I don't like heavy. I think the greatest mistake people make sometimes is overthinking things. So I try to keep lightness in my life.

And then the kids came along.

Now there's a lot of laughter. Sometimes you get serious about things that don't really matter, and I know it could happen easily to any of us. Dishes get dropped, walls get scratched, I don't know.....

But we are lucky. There's a lot of lightness and laughter in our home, and not a lot of heaviness. And for that, I am

I tell Hannah all the time: marry a man who makes you laugh. Laughing about things always seems to make it better.
