Last week my daughter was very sick with a high fever. Even after a trip to the ER and a doctor visit the next day, we couldn’t figure out what was wrong with her.
As I held her, I began making funny faces to see if she would respond. Her face lit up!
Seeing this reminded me of Proverbs 17:22,
“A joyful heart is good medicine,
But a broken spirit dries up the bones.”
In light of this, I am striving to be a more playful mama, even when I don’t feel like it. It’s worth the effort when I see my daughter’s beautiful smile and hear her giggle.
When is the last time you did something silly to make your children laugh?
