DEFINITION
adjective

: pleasant sounding : melodious

Laughter is the best medicine. Laughter can cure whatever ails. There are so many trite, overused descriptions for laughter that it almost seems vanity to cling so steadfastly to it. However, laughter is my favorite sound.

Since I can remember, the laughter of small children has always bubbled something inside of me beyond description. I love to be around children caught up in a swirl of giggles, especially those that come because of something that wouldn’t give anyone else pause.

Or the sweet responses to peek-a-boo and tickling right under the chicky wings. Laughter is something that is transparent. When it is real, there is absolutely no denying that it is a sincere laugh. When faked, it can be easily pinpointed. I love, so very much the sound waves of the laughter of the children that I nanny. Though the newest one isn’t anywhere to the laughing stage of development, I am certain that her laughter will be just as sweet and contagious as that of her sisters.

I think that everyone should laugh more. We should let go of inhibitions and let laughter infect us. The best nights are those that have ended with sides in stitches. Barely being able to move because your abs hurt from deep belly laughter is tremendously impacting for the days that follow. I adore, cherish, and value that canorous sound.

What about you? What’s your favorite sound?
