All around my house there are touches of whimsy that make me smile -
a funny angel that stands on my studio windowsill, with a tiny bird clipped on top...
a little tin angel which my daughter carried home from Mexico for me
many years ago in her jeans' pocket...
a snowman who was on a card I gave my mom one Christmas.
She had it on her dresser mirror for years and it is now tucked into the side of mine...
a cat picture from a calendar on the side of a bookcase in my studio,
and underneath a tiny cat who tops a letter opener.
I'm thinking a lot about my mom recently. It's 5 1/2 years since she died, but she still lives on in my thoughts every day. We shared a love of laughter, even silliness, and when I see something especially funny, I think of her and how we could make each other laugh.
Isn't that a wonderful way to remember someone dear?
Here's hoping you find something to make you laugh today!!
