Chapter 5, Page 9, Book 13

Mirth is God's medicine.  Everybody ought to bathe in it.  

Henry Ward Beecher



To express certain emotions, especially mirth or delight, by a series of spontaneous, usually unarticulated sounds often accompanied by corresponding facial and bodily movements.
To show or feel amusement or good humor

A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book. 

Irish Proverb

I can't say enough about the power of laughter.  It makes everyone feel better.  Even in the toughest of times a good laugh is wonderful.  There have been many days in my life that a laugh has been very hard to find.  But knowing how good it makes me feel I try and find a reason and that reason is often myself.  I'm very good at laughing at the things I do or don't do.

Humor is infectious. The sound of roaring laughter is far more contagious than any cough, sniffle, or sneeze. 


The ones you LIVE with
LAUGH with and LOVE

When ever I get together with family or friends there is always always plenty of laughter and that is why I love being with them.  When laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. Laughter brings a togetherness that shows you care.  

A good time to laugh is any time you can.  

Linda Ellerbee

Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hopes, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert.

Humor gets you out of your head and away from your troubles.

Laughter helps boost your immune system
 Laughter helps lower blood pressure and cortisol levels, decreases pain and can also help stabilize blood sugar.
Laugher stimulates chemical changes in the brain that help buffer our bodies against the cumulative effects of stress.

I hope that you'll all find something to laugh about today!  Laughter is the best medicine!

Even if there is nothing to laugh about, laugh on credit.
