What brings you joy?

by me

The most delicious sounds in the whole world are the tinkling giggles of my daughter’s laugh. Her laugh is pure and full of gusto. She’s not self-conscious of the sound. And she experiences her mirth with all of her little round belly. She throws her head back and her arms out and announces her own delight. They pour from her like a waterfall, splashing all over me and anyone in vicinity. It’s just not possible to not smile. My cheeks hurt from just imagining it. Her toothy grin and raised brows as she nods to tempt you to tickle her again. She loves it. She loves being happy. And her joy feeds me too.
