Laughter is common grace, isn’t it? I’ve been thanking God for this gift lately, especially with a toddler in tow.
Like when Cub asks for a napkin with tremendous agitation — and I laugh because the amount of agitation over a napkin is ridiculous. And he laughs in return.
Or when JE can’t hold in a laugh when I’m being incredibly stern with Cub about finishing his milk — and Cub is genuinely baffled by my request — because his cup is full of water, not milk. “It’s water?”
Thank God we can laugh at our blunders. Thank God we can lighten a tense moment with laughter, backtrack on mistakes, and embrace each other’s humanness in this way — because when all is said and done, we aren’t Him.
