A little something to make you smile

My 5-year-old granddaughter, is full of life, and likes to “do and say” funny things to make me smile.

Yesterday, she presented me with another one of her amazing jokes.

Are you ready for this?

Her: Why did the duck cross the playground?

Me: To play with the other ducks?

Her: No….to get to the other slide!  Get it?! 🙂

And then she starts laughing at herself, and I can’t help but laugh with her, because, well, she just makes me smile

And you must admit, this really was a pretty good one, now wasn’t it?

She then attempts to tell me another one, but by then she was being very silly, and it just wasn’t as successful, even to her!

In fact, it was so bad she couldn’t even bring herself to laugh at her own joke!

But that didn’t slow her down, she just moved on to some other form of silliness.

Ahhh,… the joy of the life and times of a 5-year-old. Savor the moments, each and every one of them.

Thankful Thursday: 3 gifts musical

3 gifts musical…

1. The deep belly laugh of a child…especially when it’s from one of my grandchildren. Sweet music to my ears.

2. The sound of my coffee maker as it makes me a cup of coffee.  Ahhh… I love that sound! A lot like music to me.

3. The ability to listen to a variety of music through a pretty cool program called Pandora.

These are just a few of the many things that I am so very thankful for today.

What are you thankful for?

Will you join me in looking for these gifts and sharing them with others?
