Life, Laughter, and Love

LOVE is an action word --- and love TAKES ACTION.

People need to hear "I love you" at least five times a day.

Happiness is a by-product of life.

Laughter in a family is healthy to the soul.

People find joy in investing themselves in others.

It is a mistake to waste one precious moment of your God-given day in self-hate.  Accept yourself as God made you.  You are worthy because you are His.

I'm still enjoying perusing my journal notes from years past yet today.  Please bear with me as I revisit these notes and share portions with you.  I think these notes were written during a time I was spending deliberately creating a nurturing environment for my children when they were young.  The same principles can apply to anyone of any age, though, don't you think?

Have a wonderful day!  Be blessed!


  1. very wise post today, thanks for sharing it with us!

  2. Very, very nice post. Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Susan from writingstraightfromtheheart.blogspot.com

  3. Yes, laughter is also just good for our health. Love your revisiting journal entries and sharing.

  4. You have a lot of good words in those bygone journals. Yes, I would agree that the principles apply at any point along the journey. Funny how we can learn something at an earlier age and forget it at a later one. It's good to review.
