Touch – Ese’s Shoot n Quote

“Laughter is more than just a pleasurable activity … When people laugh together, they tend to talk and touch more and to make eye contact more frequently.” ― Gretchen Rubin

Ese's Shoot n Quote (21) - Touch (1)

“Uncle Ray” (my hubby) giving one of our great-nephews a “pink belly”.  All the kiddos love him and look forward to his visits; joyfully awaiting their turn at receiving  a “pink belly”!!  This ritual of turning them upside down and patting their tummies rapidly provides peals of laughter and strengthens bonds.
