Default "What Made you laugh the First Time?"

I thought I would start a thread open for anyone to chime in..

I'm speaking Post Loss of course of our loved one.... Can most of you remember the first genuine laugh you had through the tears?

Humor has seemed to be the only way I have survived life!! My kids...My family...stupid people.. and life in general. My first real "hee-haw"..was when a woman acquaintance expressed her sympathy to me about Tammy...and how she totally understood. When I expressed my sympathy at the loss of her husband...she said...Oh, he's not dead...I divorced him... Sometimes I sure wish he was dead!!" Oh my lord, I just looked at her..said "Have a good day"...went to my car and laughed so hard I almost peed my pants!

Feel free to add your stories on this thread.. Remembering the first real true laugh we had after all the intense pain and heartache .. was and still is a gift... one of many in the lonely path we now walk in recovery from our loss.

As always I wish you peace

Memory can only tell us what we were,
in the company of those we loved;
it cannot help us find what each of us, alone, must now become.
Yet no person is really alone;
those who live no more echo still within our thoughts and words,
and what they did has become woven into what we are.

I wish you peace and a level path on your journey...
