Daily Prompt: From the Gut

Tell us about the last time you had a real, deep, crying-from-laughing belly laugh.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us JOYFUL.

There was a time in my life when laughing seemed silly, and only in extreme hilarious situations should it be attempted.  I was  and sometimes still am, a very serious, often uptight sort of person, who doesn’t seem to see to funny side of life.   Well over the last decade or so I made a real effort to see this funny side, I have 3 children for goodness sake and I know how a life of no fun turns out, plus children are just so darn funny.

Everyday now I try to laugh, that deep, hearty, out loud  laugh.  Sometimes its what the kids say, other times, my husband and I just have a bit of fun, sometimes it’s something I see on TV or read on Facebook, that is often cause of a few belly laughs!  The latest crying/laughing was just yesterday or the day before, and it was from Facebook,  (If you’ve seen the ‘auto-correct text’ post going around Facebook you know what I mean), however I had to silently laugh at it as I didn’t want to tell the kids why I was laughing, they always want to know!  It was painful to say the least, I wanted to laugh out loud and share it with every one in the room, but had to try and contain myself, it would have been hilarious to watch 🙂
