fullness of joy

Motherhood is a service and a reward. The great reward is being taught by your children. So I was taught today of JOY!
Baby brains are notorious for getting overloaded by stimuli. They feel with such intensity they have to turn away. I love the ebullient laughter that bubbles out of my baby. He gets so excited and laughs so much that he has to turn away. When was the last time you felt that way? So happy it was more than your brain could handle. If you haven't felt that lately try to find a way to get back to it.

GREAT thought for the day. I remember at times, my babies laughing so hard they would start crying.
Laughter is a beautiful thing.

There truly is nothing that brings me more instantaneous joy than the pure belly laugh of a baby. It brings back such fond memories of my sweet babies.
