A Good Laugh Among Friends

273382639850107350_DZWdav0a_c

Laughter fills the air as our cares are left at the door like a pair of dirty ol’ shoes. The mood is easy and the conversation light. There is nothing like the pleasures of forgetting our worries, and the relaxation of being with those we enjoy. Good times to be had with good friends. From backyard barbeques on the patio to a nice drink in a pub, life fills the atmosphere as we have a good laugh among friends. We find our uptight, anal selves melting into a comfortable chair as we let our hair down.

Everything in the world is right as we gather with our smiles in full beam. Whether we slide down a cold hill of powdery white snow and sip hot cocoa at the bottom, or we watch sunsets over horizons on warm summer evenings, our spirits are refreshed as our hearts are happy to be with those we love.

It is in these moments we celebrate the simple things like roasting marshmallows or blending margaritas. We find meaning and hope in newly forged relationships. We also find safety and security in those that are tried and true. We mingle and discuss fine craftsmanship, sporting events, and fishing tales. We linger when it is time to go, capturing every last joke of the evening before time catches up with us and we must go back to our regular lives.

We hold on to these feelings of bliss as if they are treasures more valuable than any achievement we have accomplished. We find we are grateful to be alive and look forward to the tomorrows of the world. We get lost in songs that remind us of these special times. We are quickly taken back and transformed in an instance as we sing along to the melody. Burden free, we may even be silly and dance. After all, what is the fun in hanging out if we can’t loosen up on the reigns a bit?

Laughter is a good medicine for the soul. It produces endorphins, healing, and an overall sense of well-being. So don’t forget to tell your serious side it is okay to chill out, relax, and add some joy to your world!

Rough & Tumble

Rough & Tumble

They play hard,
They hurt deep.
The fall down,
They love deeper.
These young men immersed in adventure and rage,
With their hearts committed, they engage.
These boys live life to the fullest, and put themselves in danger,
They have heroes such as their dads and the Lone Ranger.
The rush of adrenaline runs through their veins,
It has been passed down through generations with both pleasure and the pain.
Thrill seeking, hardcore fun,
Passion driven, devoted, free-spirits on the run.
They ride fast and push their limits.
To heal a wound takes time, but to realign their hearts, only mere minutes.
They crash big and break their bones.
But when all’s said and done they know they still have a safe place called home.
Fear is only a factor when they let it in.
They stare it in the face and laugh with a grin.
With hunger in their eyes,
And passion burning inside,
They grab their handle bars like a horse with reins,
They go full speed ahead and look back with no shame.
When they fall down, they get back up with support.
These are my nephews, of whom I adore.
