It takes hands to build a house, but only hearts can build a home.

Chapter 10, Page 18, Book 14

From quiet homes and first beginning,

Out to the undiscovered ends,
There's nothing worth the wear of winning,
But laughter and the love of friends. 

Hilaire Belloc

Color your day with laughter !

Some days it’s easy to smile, other days we have to work at it.

Not to worry, I have some great ideas to help you smile!

Grab your camera and go outside with a mission to capture things that make you happy.

Bake something that has a silly face on it. Really, this is a valid suggestion!

Dress up in clothes you love, just to run a simple errand. When you like how you look, you generally feel good.

Make time to see the sunrise or sunset, and make it an occasion.

Gratitude helps you to grow and expands; gratitude brings you and laughter into your life and into the lives of all those around you.

Eileen Caddy

Create a gratitude list including the smallest details like a fluffy pillow,  and the biggest things like your health and your family.

Laugh out loud. Choose to laugh and keep going

And last but not least, laugh at yourself.  Don’t take yourself so seriously.

There comes a time when suddenly you realize that laughter is something you remember and that you were the one laughing. 

Marlene Dietrich

If that list didn’t give you something to smile about then maybe some of these things to ponder will make you smile…

What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?

I was thinking about how people seem to read the Bible a whole lot more as they get older; then it dawned on me .....they're cramming for their final exam.

If it's true that we are here to help others, then what exactly are the others here for?

If Fed Ex and UPS were to merge, would they call it Fed UP?

One way or another I hope you enjoy a good laugh today.

Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.

Victor Hugo

HUGS AND SMILES from me to you !

We learned a tradition in Key West. Every evening for years folks would go to Mallory Square, a great view for the sunset. Soon folks were clapping as the sun set, just as they would after a great play or song. Now it is a great festival EVERY clear night, smiling and applauding at the beautiful sunset. That is what this post brought tomind.

I never thought about making faces in our (adult) food ... and now I'm wondering, "Why not?"
Great idea!

PS -
Sunrises are one of my very favorite things in this whole wide world! Incredible, this time of year in the desert Southwest.

I like that list of things to do with a camera, Ma, plus making a smiley face on a piece of food :)

I had to laugh with the FedUp, that would be cute!

Always good to laugh and always good to have gratitude!

I like color your day with laughter - I do think color makes you feel good.


HUGS and SMILES to you too. Laughter does color your world with happy feelings. I think I'll put a face in my food too.
