Chapter 9, Page 23, Book 16

A cheerful heart is good medicine,
    but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. 

Proverbs 17:22
September 23rd - remember the light side 

 If life seems jolly rotten. There's something you've forgotten. And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing...

We tend to value hard work and seriousness, and we forget to pay our respects to the equally important, light side of silliness and laughter. Being happy has nothing to do with money or fame, and everything to do with the heart.

Let the fun begin !  Lighten up! Snap out of it!  C’mon, get happy!

There is an old saying that says, Laughter is good medicine, and we all have this medicine available to us whenever we recall a funny story or act in a silly way. We magnify the effects of this medicine when we share it with the people in our lives. If we are lucky, they will have something funny to share with us as well, and the life loving sound of laughter will continue to roll out of our mouths and into the world.  Laughter is contagious!

Life is tough, and if you have the ability to laugh at it, you have the ability to enjoy it. 

 Salma Hayek

As strange as it seems, after a great deal of merriment, it can actually be a pleasure to settle down and focus on work until our next round of fun begins.

A smile can brighten the darkest day.

I have missed reading this stuff. I like it. Sherry and I were able to laugh the last couple days, and even act a little silly. It is always good to look on the lighter side.
