The people that count such things say that a child laughs 300 times a day, while an adult averages a measly 15.
All I can say is that I am ridiculously blessed to have these two clowns around.
And I'm quoting here, "Look! I'm Mario!"
Because I laughed way more then 15 times today.
Also, there must be some seriously morose children out there to help balance Malachi. Because this kid? He probably laughs 3x that much.
Usually about things that I don't find particularly funny.
But hey, amidst the chaos I'm still finding the hidden grace, and counting the 1,000 ways I am blessed, 1,000 things to be thankful for; 1,000 ways I am loved by Love Himself...
