There was a man one time that said life was not measured by the number of breaths that we take but rather, by the moments that take our breath away. It was a rather profound saying, but it was one that most of us can appreciate on a very personal level. We may live for 70, 80, or perhaps even 100 years but somebody else may live much more than us in half that time. It’s really up to us to determine the path that we are on and how much enjoyment we are getting out of the life that we have. Perhaps that is why this video touches a note for so many people.
As we go through life, there are many things that we come to appreciate. Perhaps one of the moments that we appreciate more than any other is when we have the opportunity to have a good laugh. It’s something that very few people are able to do consistently in their life but at the same time, when you look at a little baby, laughter is something that they enjoy. They don’t have all of the stress that we have as older individuals and they don’t have the need to hold back from laughing until they cry because of how they may look to others. When they see something that they find amusing or enjoyable, they laugh. The funny thing is, we can’t help but laugh along with them.
That fact is explained beautifully in the following video. A father is carrying his young baby on his back and he blows on a dandelion. It’s a simple moment, but there is something about it that the baby just can’t handle. He begins to laugh uncontrollably.
When you watch this video, hearing the baby laugh and seeing the expression on his face is sure to put a huge smile on your face. You may even find that you are laughing along with him, and enjoying a moment that adds to your life in a special way.
