    So true. Nothing like the laughter of a child to cheer one up. I'm thousands of miles away from all my seventeen grandchildren right now, so all other little kids are like my own grandkids. (Report) Reply

    Well written Harry. I defy anyone not to laugh along with a child - I've helped raise 5 and have an ocean of laughs in my back catalogue, so to speak. (Report) Reply

    Harry, there isn't anything more gratifying then the laughter of a child
    It calms the nerves and keeps us happy at least for awhile. (Report) Reply

    Same for me.

    This is cheery and makes me cry.

    Because it is so simple,

    after all, I'm a child who always cries. Maybe I need to laugh (Report) Reply

    I feel much better after reading this. Life can be oh so harsh, but one of the things life gave us to relax is children. And no doubt laughter is the cure to anything to everything. Truly a life saver. Just so... true and innocent (Report) Reply
