Day 127: Laugh Your Way to Kindness
“Against the assault of laughter nothing can stand.” – Mark Twain
“A day without laughter is a day wasted.” – Charlie Chaplin
“Laughing is and always will be the best form of therapy.” – Unknown
“Laughter: (n) When a smile has an orgasm.” – Unknown
I have to say it’s really difficult to write inspiration prose when my heart is broken and my stomach feels like it is inside out. My best friend is experiencing her worst nightmare and there is nothing I can do. I can’t change it, I can’t take it away, all I can do is check in, love her, be there, be available and listen. I have to say, I amazed that some how she is still able to laugh. That in itself an inspiration. She is an inspiration. Laughing despite the horror. My friend’s eldest child went very quickly from being a normal 10 year old boy, to one that now has been diagnosed with cancer, has had spinal surgery, MRIs, port surgery and chemotherapy all in a one week period. And yet, she finds something to laugh about everyday.
Find something everyday to laugh about, laugh until the tears come and your stomach hurts, because life is precious and I just have to say cancer sucks!
