Soften the Blows

Hi folks, I sometimes feel I need to duck right now because the hits keep coming. I must work hard to lighten up. We have to just go through a lot of stuff in life, really hard, stupid stuff. We are supposed to be tellling stories, but things might be kinda dark right now. I have found a little laughter will go along way in making life sort special.

I went to the movie tonight. I liked the guy next to me who kept asking me questions during it. (Yes, I went to the first night premiere of THOR.) Who's that? Guy whispers. Stan Lee. I whisper back. You know the guy who wrote the Thor comic. Who's the guy with bow and arrow? Hawkeye. Who's the Stark guy? Iron Man. Something about hapless movie going guy next to me was making me giggle.

And then after the movie, my daughter looks at me and I look at her and we say together and laugh -- worst movie ending ever. It's these little moments that keep me glued. Keep laughing. Let laughter leaven your life. Let that influence you to supreme confidence and hope.

Just some ramblling this week. Hope you are laughing. Be back next week with more inspiration.

I call this week's doodle for no particular reason: "PINK".

Through humor, you can soften some of the worst blows that life delivers. And once you find laughter, no matter how painful your situation might be, you can survive it. Bill Cosby

Oh, Molly, it sounds like the daughter moment was a bright spot in a hard season. I'm so sorry you're getting buffeted right now. Or is it buttressed? (I just looked it up - buffeted is getting rough winds. Buttressed is what happens to a tree because of the buffeting.) So, here's hope and faith that the buffeting will build you roots, and the rough winds will turn to breezes that calm and caress. Peace.

Laughter is truly the best medicine and that old cliche never wears out. Here's to keeping your giggles going.

I do have really deep roots, I've had every leaf stripped off me more than once but then the spring comes and I bloom all over again. (P.s: Things aren't so bad. I'm just musing.)

Hi, Jaye, I agree about laughter being the best medicine.
