(43-202) The Gift of Laughter

Luis gave me the PERFECT Valentine's day gift... A laugh.  He wrote something very funny in my card; and I laughed out loud.  What more could I want?   A laugh isn't fattening; and it doesn't need any special care. A laugh is something that you can enjoy as is; and keep with you for as long as you like.  Laughter is the gift that keeps on giving and if you share it; the gift gets stronger rather than diminishes.  You can't say that about a box of chocolates.

I truly believe that laughter is the best medicine AND in fact, I think that it's physically impossible to feel bad when your laughing.  So, in honor of this Valentine's Day, and the gift of laughter that I received; I'd like to share two things with you.  First, some wonderful quotes about laughter; and then a joke that we heard while on the tram at Disneyland.

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

"He who laughs, lasts!"  - Mary Pettibone Poole

"An optimist laughs to forget, a pessimist forgets to laugh.” - Unknown

“What soap is to the body, laughter is to the soul” - Yiddish Proverb

"You don't stop laughing because you grow old. You grow old because you stop laughing." - Michael Pritchard

And now for the joke...

Why does Tigger bounce around the forest on his tail?

Because he doesn't want to step on Pooh.                     
Till next time...
