Good afternoon, my lovely poopies. Sorry, but will be a brief posting today! This is partly because I have a zillion and one things to do before the sitter arrives in a few hours, but also this is mainly because the Momtra needs very little explanation:
“The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” - e e cummings
So this quote is one of my favorites, as it is a simple but awesome reminder of why we’re here, what this life is all about and how we should live it as often as possible. If you haven’t had a good laugh today, poops, I suggest you find a way to do it before your head hits the pillow tonight. Laughing is literally the healthiest thing you can do for yourself on a daily basis. Doesn’t matter what the source…a story your friend told you, something you read in a book or magazine, a video someone sent you on you tube…or even laughing at yourself for something silly you did when no one was looking. And if none of that works, for god’s sakes, go tickle one of your kids! Their unadulterated laughter is the most contagious sound in the world. Nothing makes me crack-up more than a major tickle session…especially when they girls really lose it. Unless the laughter is it’s at someone else’s expense, there is nothing better!
Life can be very serious and, at times, even overwhelming. We all have problems and challenges and things that might prevent us from bringing more humor into our lives. But, truly, laughter really is the best medicine. And if you allow it, laughter can even be a solution or an antidote to something that may have seemed impossible to fix. As you enter your weekend, do your heart and mind and soul some good….laugh as much as you can! Try to see the humor and levity in situations that, perhaps, in the past you may not have viewed in that way. Open yourselves up to the possibility that laughing something away may actually work (and add years to your life by the way!) If stress is related to the majority of all diseases, then surely laughter can contribute to the cure!
As E E Cummings so eloquently reminds us, don’t waste another day! I wish you all a weekend full of crack-ups and giggles my beautiful poopies! Let’s go Cardinals! xxoo.
