Just Smile and Wave

Overheard on Easter- me & my mom in the kitchen, husband and (almost)10 yr old son Lucas in the adjoining living room.

Mom and I perked our ears up when we hear my son Lucas say out of the blue,

"Daddy? I know the answer to all your problems!"

(Daddy): "Oh really? What's that?"

(Lucas): "Just smile and wave".

OMG!!! I thought I was going to bust a gut from laughing so hard. I just about fell off my chair. LOL!!

Oh son, if only it were that easy.

With a little investigating we found out that this particular bit of wisdom originated with the movie Madagascar, but it was just soooo funny. And even funnier, I don't know what made him think of it. He's only seen that movie a couple of times, and the last time was months ago.

I was reminded of that little funny this morning when I was doing a little blog-hopping and came across this quote:

“Smile, breathe and go slowly.” (Zen monk, Thich Nhat Hanh)

I found that quote at Zenhabits, after follwing a link from Ali Edwards. (like I said, blog-hopping!)

Hope everyone had a Blessed and Happy Easter.
