...she can laugh at the days to come. Proverbs 31:25

Laughter has filled our home in the sweetest ways lately. 

When Lauren wakes up from a nap and I jump into bed with her for a few seconds of giggle time before little brother demands our attention again. 

When Easton gives that little baby gurgle filled by an almost there smile I know he is laughing. Laughing at us or with us or possibly even at the fact that he is stuck with a family like us. 

When Shawn comes home from work and all of us are still in our pajamas and the living room literally looks like fifteen monkeys have been playing in it all day long.  He laughs and hugs me. Just what I need every time. 

I am a blessed woman. I look at my life, at the craziness of the beauty of it.... and I know that it is true. I. Am. Blessed. 

Why? I don't know. But, I do know that these days of laughter will come and go. They will be replaced by times of sorrow and different times of laughter. Because I don't know the future, I am choosing to laugh right now. To enjoy this moment. And, because I know I have a God who is EVER CONSTANT and EVER FAITHFUL in my life, I can laugh at the days to come as well.
