'The most wasted of all days is the one during which you did not laugh!'
I don't have the attribution for this quote, but I so delighted in it that I decided to use it anyway. A couple of Sundays ago at church, I looked around the congregation and thought of how fortunate I was to have so many good friends. At the same time, I pondered that those people I considered my BFFs were those who made me smile, who made me laugh.
I hope they feel the same about me.
Life is a serious business. I can't argue with that. Yucky stuff happens. Sickness, financial setbacks, problems with family. What gets me through, aside from the obvious of faith, family, and friends, is laughter. No, I don't laugh at heartache, but I do try to laugh at life's absurdities and goofiness. I laugh when I receive back in the mail a letter I sent out to a friend with my own address. I laugh when I notice that I've put my blouse on inside out. I even laugh over the country's inept politicians, because if I didn't, I would surely cry.
Joy for the day: finding laughter in life.
