Today I am the most grateful
for a few moments of laughter:
uncontrollable, eyes leaking, leaning on my knees,
This picture is not from today,
but when I think of laughter, I think of this photo.
Today I had many things for which to be grateful: waking up in an city where bombs do not explode; a car that is not only reliable but downright cushy (I used the heated seat today); 2 full minutes of perfect behavior by 23 kindergartners completely absorbed in the reading of a good book by a great teacher; tickets for Madonna's show tonight; my amazing husband; good friends - the list seems endless. But that laughter, it made my gratitude for all of these good things in my life absolutely shine.
