Sometimes there is no order because laughter takes over. This was the case in our home last night. At dinner we had family devotions and the kids were just squirmy and giggly. Normally tit would agitate me that they aren’t paying attention, but not last night. I just could help but smile and laugh right along with them. There is just something about all of your children in one room, at one table, being happy.
After dinner and showers we cranked up a couple songs on the ipod and had a mini dance party. Again….the room was filled with wiggles and giggles and even though it was past bedtime we just let it happen…..why? Because of one thing…LAUGHTER!
As a mommy I get to watch and listen to my kids as they express their emotions everyday. Some days we have tears, some days anger, some days we are worried, some days we are tired and sometimes we are just silly. There is something about the laughter of my children that fills me with joy.
After finally getting the giggle monsters all tucked in, Cory and I just sat on the couch and savored the day. How blessed we are that our home is a place where are kids are comfortable enough to let whatever emotions they have just flow. How sweet it is to know that our home is a safe place for them and a place where we can be free to laugh.
