Know what? We spend to much times dwelling in the unhappy state of affairs. Let's start a new trend. Let's laugh!

Laughter, the Best Medicine


Youíve heard it said, Iím sure

That if you laugh the world laughs with you

But you cry alone for they will ignore.

They know not what pain may make you cry

And may not even ask what they might do or say,

To ease your pain and rid your tears for they know not even why

You shed those tears, so naturally, they canít make go away.

This means, my friend, it is up to you

To be the one to brighten up your world today.

I know exactly what you can do

To bring tears of laughter to your eyes.

Find some humor in anything

The benefits will bring a wonderful surprise.

You will soon find joy and your laughter will sing

It is good for your health, any doctor will tell you

And more importantly, you will find happiness within.

With each burst of laughter your lungs are cleared like new

And your spirits will surely rise again.

So laugh hard and long and keep a smile on your face.

A frown turns people away but they are welcomed by a grin.

They will see your smile which will serve to erase

Their own problems and give them a new frame of mind

My smile is your smile and yours is your anotherís

And we all share our smiles like sisters and brothers.

This is so good, and your words are so precious and inspiring. I also enjoyed your open mike recital of the day. It is so well-spoken. It was a gem! Thank you so much for sharing your words of wisdom!

It takes less muscles to laugh than it does to frown! I'm all for laughter, my friend. Laughing at yourself, even better! Good one!

God Bless
