Remembering Jakin ~ Laughter

Today I'm joining my friend Mattie has she remembers her son Jakin. Today would have been his dute date but God took him home to Heaven. Jakin's name means " Laughter ". So today we thinking of anything funny or brings a Smile to your face.

I remember after my first loss a miscarriage Feb 10, 2006 ~ my oldest Ridge would be turning six in 18 days. I remember asking Ridge what he wanted on his birthday cake. He told me he wanted a Power Ranger but half of the cake could have flowers. I asked why ??? That doesn't go together. He said I want to share with you Mommy so you can be happy.
I then remembered something my own Father told me right before he passed away. He died one week before my birthday. He said you have fun and have the biggest party. Lots of smiles !!! For his service after he passed we called it the Celebration of Life , I remember people laughing about things my Dad had done , jokes he told and most of all the Smile he always had on his face.

I wanted to share this , I just got this email from a friend the other day & thought it was so cute.
Hope you like it :)

A few quotes I love ~

Laughter gives us distance. It allows us to step back from an event, deal with it and then move on. ~Bob Newhart

Don't cry because it's over , Smile beacause it happened ~ Dr Seuss

This is for Jakin , I was just lookin for some laughter quotes and found this. How very true this is !!!!!

Beautiful post, Caroline! I'm behind a few days, and just got through reading about your helping Thaniqua'a class, seeing a lovely rainbow, the pics your cousin sent, and the sweet dandelion. Plus, Jennifer's cute face! You have so many neat posts every day and I procrastinate and sometimes go weeks to make a post. Just wanted to let you know I enjoy your blog!
