"Let us learn to show our friendship for a man when he is alive and not after he’s dead,"
Day 161. The Laughing One.
I really think laughter is one of the things I value most in this life. There's nothing like it. Today I was reminded about how much I love it. I was at a recurring event Stephen and I go to and one of the other "regulars" was there. Stephen was out of town, so today I got to sit with them...throughout the event, we laughed. We laughed at quick one-liners, we laughed at shared stories, we laughed at other folks, we laughed at ourselves. We had a wonderful time. The happy residue of that laughter has stayed with me...just as a warm glow of friendship and peace.
To my friends who visited and laughed with me today (and you know who you are) thank you - laughter is one of the greatest gifts...ever!
Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing how little we realize the gift that is every day and every person. We wait till a funeral to say nice things, we wait till we are "old" to regret what we never said or did. We wish we didn't work so much. We lament what we have lost. Why don't we learn?
So here we go - Ali's Project 365. 365 days of appreciating people. There are a few rules...there's no order in how I present folks to you, I may know some better than others, identifying characteristics may or may not be included - the goal here is to really look at the good in each and every person and let THAT person know that they are loved - NOW.
I'll try to stay day to day but I can tell you now there will be catch up times...this is just my little attempt to put a little something positive out there, every day, and perhaps, in the process get some more positive energy out there in the world.
