You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley

Ashley Jo

I threw my head back and laughed.
not giggled. 
not quietly, or even politely.
not on que. 
I laughed. 
It came right down from my toes, tickling my stomach, prying my mouth open and it burst from me. 
I stopped abruptly, astonished at what had come out of my small throat. 
I haven't laughed like that in a long time. 
I studied the boy over, confused at his ability to pull me out of that numb feeling I haven't been able to shake for months.
He made a face at me.
And his laugh joined in with mine harmoniously.

What a beautiful day. 

Surround yourself with those who make you laugh, and for heaven's sake,
laugh at yourself every once in a while.
Life shouldn't be taken too seriously.
