Belly laughs

One of my favorite feelings is a really good laugh. The kind of laugh that makes my cheeks sore and my eyes flood with tears.  This kind of laugh is rare; it happens maybe once every couple of months if I'm lucky.  But, oh, when it happens, the sensation of joy is overwhelming.  It's as if my mind has been tickled.

Today, my husband and I had one of these laughs.  We were leaving our favorite Mexican restaurant, and he made a comment that was hilarious in a variety of ways. We stood there crumbling with laughter as the other patrons of the establishment glanced sidelong at us.

In the blissful moments after our laugh, I silently appreciated the good belly laugh and the man who can make one happen. 


  1. This is a great slice to share and you've put it together on the plate like dessert and I was ready to indulge. I felt the laugh in my belly and knew joy even though I have no idea what you and your husband laughed about together.

  2. Belly laughs and the moments surrounding them are priceless! There's something so fun about them that makes me smile just thinking about it.

  3. I love laughing until it hurts. It's so great that you and your husband have that kismet bond that's let you stop and enjoy the simplicities together!

  4. So true - you definitely have to savor those moments when they happen. Now it lives here on your blog and with all of us slicers! :-) Thanks for sharing!
