“When the whole world is crazy, it doesn’t pay to be sane.”― Terry Goodkind, The Pillars of Creation
When everything seems crazy, I look at birds
Sometimes they seem weird as well
Like this red-bellied woodpecker eating oranges
Who knew they liked oranges?
Or maybe he just needed a break from peanuts?
I’ve thought about this subject enough for one week…
So I’ll go with dessert
“Ask anyone and they’ll most likely say their family is crazy, and if they don’t say their family is crazy, their friends are crazy. That’s because everyone is crazy after taking the mask off. People are most themselves when not really trying to fit in, when either alone or around those already closest to them, and that is crazy.”
― Criss Jami, Killosophy
One of the things I love about my hubby is that I can just be my true self…
Notice that I didn’t say my true, crazy self –
but that’s mostly what I meant
Of course, he says the same (without crazy in the sentence as well)
“I guess sometimes the greatest memories are made in the most unlikely of places, further proof that spontaneity is more rewarding than a meticulously planned life.”
― J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Always
Another thing that I love is his spontaneity
jumping in the child’s racecar cart at the grocery store and asking me to push him
“Because when you’re laughing, there is no other emotion in that moment except for joy.”
― Robert Schimmel
Right after I snapped the picture, I headed into the grocery store without him
so I wouldn’t have to witness his 6’3″ body trying to get out of the cart
and because I didn’t want to laugh so hard that I wouldn’t look crazy trying to find a bathroom in a strange store…
But when I turned around to see him walking into the store a lot of other shoppers were smiling as well…
His day isn’t complete until I laugh at least once!
Not so long ago, laughter was hard to find
I am so grateful that it’s back in my life!
When you awaken love and laughter in your life, your mind lets go of fear and anxiety, and your happy spirit becomes the healing balm that transforms every aspect of your human experience.Jesse Dylan
Love and laughter are good for my soul!
Thank you Bill, for loving me just as I am
and for making me laugh
