Picnic Laughter

My Mom and I had a picnic lunch today at the cancer center.
She wanted to start calling herself by the Japanese word for mother which is either "Okasan" or "Ha Ha"
Mom: "Ha Ha?"
Me: "Yeah."
"Is there a hyphon?"
"no."
"So it's just Ha Ha? As in ha ha?"
"Yes."
"So Keigo or Kie walk into their house and say, "Oh, HA HA what's for dinner?"
And for some reason, we both found that hilarious.
Truly I am blessed. (if you look really closely on my right cheek you can see tears from my laughter...)
She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. P.31:25

Jamie-Seriously...if the three of us got together...there would be some serious peeing of the pants. (remember tackle spoons!?!) I love laughing. Laughing with the two of you would completely make my day. Some day, somehow, we need to make that happen!!
