Wacky Wednesday: What I’m Thankful For

Da Hype 1

I  am extremely thankful for laughter! I cannot begin to identify the number of people in my life who make me laugh. I talk to my mother several times a week (though not enough for her) and at every opportunity that presents itself, we quote a line of the The Color Purple and fall out laughing at our clever selves. I have countless friends like the Da Realist 1, who I speak to on a regular basis, and who I laugh with frequently. Nothing is funnier than watching Da Realist 1 give someone the side eye when she could have sworn she was wearing her poker face. For the record: Da Realist 1 has no poker face. Last, no one makes me laugh more heartily than my 6 year old, Nina. Sometimes, we laugh so hard at each other that tears run down both of our faces. She is the silliest kid I know.

In recent years, I have faced some moments of loss, and in those moments, I learned to be thankful for laughter.

First, I have to say, “Get outta my head, Hype 1!” I was going to write about being thankful for a sense of humor, especially during difficult times. You know, sometimes we have to laugh to keep from crying. But I will press on. Fortunately, there are many things for which I am thankful.

I am thankful that my husband and I are together, living in the same city. Because of school and having jobs in separate cities, sometimes we weren’t able to live together. It’s hard being a single when you’re used to being a couple. We always found a way to be together during the holidays, and I was grateful for that. But our time together was always too short. So, this Thanksgiving I will be thinking about how thankful I am to be with my husband–who prefers not to be used as material in this blog–every day. Sorry, Zachary! I blame it on Da Hype 1. She stole my answer. 😉
