    Today was a good day for Edna my step mum we have not laughed so much for years. my dad came in wearing his cap after she told him off for wearing it she said "take it of its makes you frisky" my dad replied you better tell John (my hubby) to get one then I quickly replied I will tell him NOT TO hes bad enough we laughed so much, It was so nice to see my dad laughing I can't remember the last time. I must be making a difference.

    I just had to share this with you all just to remind us all there is good days sometimes

    It`s as important to share the laughter as it is to share the tears.
    Love xx

    Amongst all the bad days there will be good days, you just have to grab hold of them with 2 hands. :)

    Thank you for sharing one of your good days with us.

    Hello Heartbroken

    I'm learning very quicky to appreciate the good days also. Dad wasn't very good tonight when I visited but when I was getting ready to go he asked if I'd heard all the fuss about the floods. Quickly latching on that he was talking about the earthquake, I asked if that's what he was talking about.

    'So that's why all my underpants have disappeared' he exclaimed with total shock on his face. You could hear me laughing on the ground floor of the home.

    That made me smile.

    You have to giggle don't you sometimes, or you would spend your Days miserable as sin.

    Keep smiling.

    Mum cries a lot with frustration, so it is always good if she can have a laugh. We were playing Scrabble the other day and I put out "LOVERS" - she then added "SHAG". She said to me "That's not what you are thinking - it is the shag on a rock!" - BIG GRIN!!! I acted "shocked"!! Said things like "how disgraceful for MY MOTHER to think things like that!" Also added that "OF COURSE I knew she meant the shag on the rock". "Oh I don't believe you!" she chortled!! It was SO good to see her laughing and being "risque"!! :D

    There is a saying, "Laughter is the shock absorber that eases the blows of life" I think that this is so true. It's good to share in on some happiness. Wishing you many more laughs, Taffy. :):)
