"the most wasted of all days is one without laughter"
~ ee cummings
As someone who can be too serious and thus, tend to worry and fret, laughter, even a simple smile, is a lifeline to a modicum of serenity. Especially these days in this world with the health challenges we are facing. Laughter brings me back to center. It reminds me to be grateful for what I have. Who I have in my life.
I thank my lucky stars that I married a man who values humor and sends me laugh out loud e-mails almost every day. And I thank my lucky stars that I have friends who share silly FB posts that always bring a smile if not an outright belly laugh. (Pat, that's for you!) I'm so grateful for the late night comics who can find or create humor from a situation that otherwise stirs up angst and anger. And special thanks to all my friends and my brother and sister who, when we speak, manage to get me to laugh at something, anything. My days would be darker without all of you.
So, I conclude this brief post with one man's witty observations on aging. Hope you get a laugh or two, or at least an occasional smile.
