Here is what a father’s laughter does. It makes the child feel safe and secure to freely express themselves innocently and freely. Here’s what a child’s laughter does. You the parent are blessed by witnessing God shining through his most perfect creation, your child.
Nothing connects you to your child than the unabashed release of laughing together. I mean laughing with one another not at one another.
I tell you men this is a gift that keeps on giving. Kids that witness their fathers finding and enjoying levity in life learn to find and enjoy the levity in their lives. There is nothing more rewarding than a child that lives 90 years of childhood.
When does the youthful smile slowly turn inward, when does the weight of life drain away a child’s laughter. When did this happen as I was standing there watching the innocents drawn from me.
