Laugh at your fears

“In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.”–Khalil Gibran

When I was a very small child, I ran to my mother crying and afraid in the middle of a thunderstorm. She said, “Don’t be afraid, it’s only thunder,” and she took me out on the front porch to watch the storm. We sat in the swing and when it thundered again, we slapped our legs and forced a laugh. When it thundered once again, we laughed, but the laugh was not forced, it was genuine. This I remember, sixty-six years later. Now, the thunder often comes in many disguises and I still slap my knee and laugh at it. Laughter is life’s greatest medicine and Man’s greatest weapon. Go out today and share a smile.

Everything is going to be all right
