Laughter on a Sunday Evening
We do this fun thing with my son and daughter-in-law which is that we skype with them every Sunday night. It's become a tradition and when we miss it, it matters. Tonight there was no skyping because they just moved into a new apartment and have no internet connection yet, but we all crowded around one phone on speaker and had some good old-fashioned breathless laughing together.
I mean HILARIOUS stuff.
I just recently had the chance to look up the definition of that word and one of the featured ones is "boisterously merry." Yes. That about covers it. And it did my heart good.
There were guffaws to be heard about everything from the usual sibling name-calling to the dishes Jeff was washing to their new-to-them car (a 1993 Buick Park Avenue free from Ash's grandma-tell me that is not a car worthy of some boisterous merriment when you are 24 and 21 years old!) to my husband's singing voice and back again to the name calling.
My kids laughing together will always be one of the best sounds my ears can hear.
