Serious Thought Sunday: Laughter

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

I love this quote, because for me it is exactly how I get through anything besides, of course, Heavenly Father.

I have found my laughter because I believe, no I know, that life here is to experience and to learn and then when it's done, which is inevitable because someday it will be, there is the world after this which brings eternity and peace, and that encompasses happiness.

Most of what life throws our way we have no control over... so better to laugh and work through it then to throw yourself into a deep pit of darkness.

I'm not sure what those of you who don't believe in God or a Father in Heaven or a power beyond this life believe, but I just can't believe there isn't something more incredible after this life, nothing to look forward to, nothing to live life here for.

I do hope, whether you believe in God or not, that you find your laughter.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Laughter is definately the best medicine.
I am a glass half full girl and would rather smile than dwell on a bad situation!

I have to agree. I believe you'd go insane without laughter.

You know, my siblings and I dealt with my father all through our childhoods who was devoid of any kind of hilarity AT ALL. The only way we were able to survive to this day was to go against everything that my father stood against and create laughter in amongst ourselves. Without it... life sucks quite honestly.

So, so true! You should have seen me cracking jokes about myself while I was delivering my last baby totally natural. She was the one who had to have surgery because her head plates were fused solid.

No wonder it was so painful!

Okay, so I know that's not what you're talking about, but that's how I tend to deal with things. Laugh!

I love that quote cuz it's from Bill Cosby and I love him:)

I'm pretty sure laughter is part of Heavenly Father's plan. At least I hope so---cuz otherwise my life is a mess:)
