Quotable Sunday

Smiles and Laughter:

Quotes have always made me think of my father and always will, this is one my dad loved:
"He who has achieved success has worked well, laughed often and loved much."


~Elbert Hubbard

Your legacy lives on dad, here they are.




My Cutie Bug at Christmas Time with his sister's scooter.


The laughter of adults was always very different from the laughter of children. The former indicated a recognition of the familiar, but in children it came from the shock of the new. ~Elizabeth Hardwick





My kids are the 2 in front on the laps, the others are my brother's girls, ages 9, 8, 5 and 2. Boy is my brother in trouble!

Everytime you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing. ~Mother Teresa




My Angel last summer, 4 years old.


Smiling is infectious,


You can catch it like the flu.


Someone smiled at me today,


And I started smiling too.

A laugh, to be joyous, must flow from a joyous heart, for without kindness, there can be no true joy.
~Thomas Carlyle






This is my Angel at 18 months after a rousing round of Ring Around the Rosy

A laugh is a smile that bursts.
~Mary H. Waldrip

You don't stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing.
~Michael Pritchard


And one of my favorites:

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.
