A Little Laughter

"The most wasted of all days is one without laughter."  e.e. cummings

"Humor is the shock absorber of life:  It helps us take the blows." writer Peggy Noonan

"Everyone looks so much better when they smile."  Jimmy Fallon, comedian and late-night TV host

"A word or smile is often enough to put fresh life in a despondent soul."  St. Therese of Lisieux

What I have learned is that humor is never a waste of time.  Humor helps us deal with everyday issues and puts life in perspective.  Also we look better when we smile!   Our smile may uplift someone else who may be having a difficult time!

Humor is a wonderful gift to share.  It is never used to "make fun" of someone else. Sometimes it helps to make fun of ourselves!

"My daughter started making fart noises with her mouth and then laughing.  And I was like, Oh, well, I've taught her everything I know.  Andy Samberg, actor

The military is a difficult place to find humor but many succeed:

Humor in Uniform

"The military has a long, proud tradition of pranking recruits.  Some favorites from
Instructed a private in the mess hall to look for left-handed spatulas
Sent a Recruit to medical-supplies office in search of fallopian tubes.
Ordered a private to bring back a five-gallon can of dehydrated water (in fact, the sergeant just wanted an empty water can)"

"We made a private sweep all the sunshine off the sidewalks. It took the poor guy all day."
 Ben Savage

I hope that life sends you many opportunities for laughter!  Remember!

"The smile is the shortest distance between two people."  Victor Borge, pianist
