Laugh and Last

Friends (and a few who were not friends) have commented on my sense of humor. Both of my grandfathers possessed great senses of humor as did my father, so I guess I inherited it. Nevertheless, it has kept me balanced and sane.  William Arthur Ward, a Christian motivational writer said, “A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.”  Mark Twain once wrote, “The human race has one really effective weapon, and that is laughter.” The quote, “Laughter is the best medicine” has been attributed to numerous persons. As one who has faced a share of challenges – challenges that could either be faced with tears or laughter – I confess that humor has been instrumental in survival. It is even said of the Lord, “He who sits in the heavens shall laugh” (Psalm 2:4).  So, look for humor, find occasion to laugh, enjoy life. (My book, “Mud Hen in a Peacock Parade” is a collection of humorous stories from my life.  The Second Edition is available on amazon.com.)
