She laughed Again.

IMG_8886 2I hope you throw your head back and quit worrying now. I hope you stick your tongue out and catch raindrops and  bits of sunshine on your lips. I hope you stop thinking about what someone might say, or the faces they might make at you, dancing with your head tilted to the sky.

I hope you forget how tired you are, how worn your body feels, how stressed out you feel in this moment, and you let yourself be a little kid again.

I hope you smile. I hope that smile grows. I hope that smile stretches across your face until it pulls the corners of your mouth open. I hope you chuckle. I hope that chuckle becomes a giggle, then a spurt of laughter, then one of those full-on belly heaves where you almost lose your breath.

See, sometimes life sucks. Sometimes we don’t know if we’ll make it through. Sometimes IMG_8890 2we don’t know where we’re headed or the ‘why’ behind our circumstances. Sometimes our hearts break. Sometimes we lose people we love and our worlds are left in pieces. Sometimes we also save people we love. Sometimes we feel helpless. Sometimes we’re scared. Sometimes we don’t want to open our eyes when we hear that alarm clock beep.

But here’s the thing, today you did.
