I woke up in a silly mood this morning with random songs floating through my head. My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean was one song that I started singing out of nowhere. I can't even tell you the last time I heard that song! And other random songs from childhood popped into my head as well. It gave me a good laugh at myself.
The brain is a funny thing. Random memories will pop up from the slightest triggers such as a smell. Then other times things will pop into my head for no apparent reason at all. Mostly, I just go with and get a chuckle along the way.
This morning I am so grateful for the silliness. I'm grateful to start the day laughing. I'm grateful for the uplifting and healing properties of laughter. I'm grateful for the way memories can randomly pop into the present moment. And I'm grateful to celebrate the funny memories today.
I'm grateful to be married to an equally silly and playful man. I'm grateful that even when we are not necessarily in the same space of playfulness we can still allow each other the space and celebrate with each other. And I'm grateful for his ability to do so many voices and accents that make me laugh.
When was the last time you felt silly or had a memory pop up from, seemingly, nowhere? When was the last time you laughed just to laugh?
May today bless you with laughter and the freedom to be silly. May you find joy in these moments of play. Have a beautiful day!
