Explore the value of Laughter
A smile starts on the lips, A grin spreads to the eyes, A chuckle comes from the belly; But a good laugh bursts forth from the soul, Overflows, and bubbles all around.
There is something more - the spirit, or the soul. I think that that quality encourages our courtesy and care and our minds. And mercy, and identity.
May Light always surround you; Hope kindle and rebound you. May your Hurts turn to Healing; Your Heart embrace Feeling. May Wounds become Wisdom; Every Kindness a Prism. May Laughter infect you; Your Passion resurrect you. May Goodness inspire your Deepest Desires. Through all that you Reach For, May your arms Never Tire.
When you awaken love and laughter in your life, your mind lets go of fear and anxiety, and your happy spirit becomes the healing balm that transforms every aspect of your human experience.
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
May love and laughter light your days, and warm your heart and home. May good and faithful friends be yours wherever you may roam...
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.

Spending the night with my daughter and her family is always quite an experience. The last time I spent the night in a twin bed in the room with my three year old grandson. Since he had a nap earlier in the day, he wasn't the least bit sleepy when his mom decided that it was bedtime for everyone. He climbed on...

Laughter has never come easy for me. Here I am looking straight in the face at 62 and just realizing how little I laugh and that's no laughing matter. Rather sad isn't it? Learning to laugh will be put at the top of my Bucket List. Nothing else matters.

Laughter is to bring happiness among all. To lessen the sorrows of others and to increase their joy. I smile a lot everyday and try to spread happiness among others.

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.
Laughing is the medicine to the soul!
