My husband has an eerily similar sense of humor, and he has quite the knack of making me laugh. How many times have I been irked with him and he disarmed me by being funny! And, he has said that one of the reasons he married me was because I was smart enough to laugh at his jokes. ;)
My kids like to laugh, too. I love that they find all those corny old jokes hilariously funny. I love making them giggle. I love that they can (mostly) laugh at themselves and that they, too, are learning to look for the humor in the rough patches. And sometimes, ok, most times, they make me laugh without meaning to be funny just because of that quirky gene they inherited.
Laughter is truly a gift and I am thankful for it.
