I never really thought about doing that until Martina McBride sang a song about it. And then I thought to myself, that sounds fun. But it's not exactly something you can force.
This morning, however, it happened all on its own! A little earlier than I would have liked, but who am I to control comedic timing in my dreams?
This might sound bad, but in my dream my mom slid down a muddy hill, somehow dug her feet in at the bottom (a pond), thus launching herself face first out across the pond before landing--still face first.
And I was laughing so hard in my dream that I woke up from the effort of trying to laugh for real.
In my defense, it was really funny in my dream and my mama was laughing, too.
So, even though it was a good half hour before I needed to wake up, it was still just a very pleasant way to wake up. Joyful Moment.
And then I volunteered in Sweet P's classroom again. I'm pretty sure that will be a Joyful Moment for me every week. The kids in her class are just so darn sweet! I received hugs, waves, and a bunch of happy "Hi, Sweet P's Mom!" So cute.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments and the experience of waking up laughing--just hopefully, not at your mama's expense!
