Explore the value of Laughter
In moments of discouragement, defeat, or even despair, there are always certain things to cling to. Little things usually: remembered laughter, the face of a sleeping child, a tree in the wind-in fact, any reminder of something deeply felt or dearly loved. No man is so poor as not to have many of these small candles. When they are lighted, darkness goes away-and a touch of wonder remains.
These Small Candles
I've always thought that a big laugh is a really loud noise from the soul saying, 'Ain't that the truth.'
A sense of humor... is needed armor. Joy in one's heart and some laughter on one's lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.
Into each day, put in about one teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of play, and a heaping cupful of good humor!
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, It's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities.
Theodor Seuss Geisel
I will follow the upward road today; I will keep my face to the light. I will think high thoughts as I go my way; I will do what I know is right. I will look for the flowers by the side of the road; I will laugh and love and be strong. I will try to lighten another’s load this day as I fare along.

My hero is my old babysitter, Kaitlin. She graduated from Ball State University. I sometimes still see her, but it is hard because she lives far away.

They say that a smile says a thousand words and at times when you hear someone else you start to laugh too. This all happened without saying a word. Makes you stop and think doesn't it?
Laughter is sharing and caring and loving! So spread the love, care, and share a laugh with someone you know.
