The book Small Steps for Catholic Moms offers daily meditations to help busy moms attain balance between an active life and a contemplative one. Each day, the book shares three items which call us to “Think-Pray-Act”. The following is a meditation passage from the book (page 6):
Think: “It is requisite for the relaxation of the mind that we make use, from time to time, of playful deeds and jokes.” –St. Thomas Aquinas
Pray: God, help me to always hear Your glad voice in the laughter of the ones I love.
Act: Pop some popcorn this afternoon and share jokes as a family. If you don’t know any good ones, borrow some children’s joke and riddle books from the library. Laugh together!
