The Best Sound in the World

I love everything related to our five senses.  Sights, sounds, smells, texture… don’t take these things for granted!  They improve our quality of life here on this planet.  Relish them.  Savor them.

A hundred things went through my head when I saw today’s topic “your favorite sound”.  A crackling fire, crumpling paper, the ‘pop’ that bubble-wrap makes when you squeeze it, the steady ‘click-clack’ of high heels on pavement.  But there is one sound that can put a smile on my face any time, any where, no matter what or how I’m feeling.  That sound is, a laughing baby.  Can you listen to this without cracking a smile?

I definately can’t!  In fact, I can count on this sound to cheer me up.  I keep this video in my ‘favorites’ just for that reason.  The only thing better than this, is listening to my own 3 year old son laugh.  His giggle makes me giggle and his belly laugh practically dares me to be in a bad mood!  There is NO GREATER SOUND in the WORLD!  None.

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be.” ~James Matthew Barrie (author of Peter Pan)
